What helps you prepare for worship?
That’s the first question. Sometimes I write a “HeartWorship” item for my church bulletin and order-of-worship sheet that attempts to encourage preparation for the worship to come and is usually tied to the theme of the Sunday morning message, songs, scriptures and table thoughts. (I reproduce them on this blog, though many of you don’t really get the benefit of the connection to our worship at at my home church!)
Some folks say it helps. I know it helps me, writing them. It helps me reading others’ submissions to the “HeartWorship” series.
Are there things that you do, read, listen to, watch, meditate upon, or otherwise encounter/participate in that heighten your sensitivity/anticipation of the worship hour to come?
And the second question is like unto it … but I’m going to hold it for a later blog entry.
(Don’t be shy about adding later thoughts to the preceding entry’s questions! They’re important!)
