Yesterday was phenomenal, at least to me! 🙂 Our second week of playing the blues with the addition of harmonica just added a great feel.
We actually had people ask “Are we supposed to have that much fun in church?” That really caught me in a good and bad way.
Good, because it was obvious that people enjoyed it and still worshiped.
Bad, or should I say sad, because it is obvious that whether through tradition and/or upbringing there is a segment of people that don’t think church should or could be fun.
God who created us and takes joy in us and wants us to have joy through Him would want us bored to tears? Where is the abundant life he promises in the Bible if that is what is expected in His House? You can still have respect and reverence while having fun. Why would anyone want to know more about God if we have to look and truly be miserable in the process?!
I have fun at church do you? Fun should not come at the expense of good biblical teaching but if the core of the church is sound then there should be no reason to think God wants us miserable to feel more spiritual!
