I Suppose with so few people going to Church these days, and many Churches adopting a free style worship, we are missing out on the Liturgical prayers. It was lovely yesterday that all of us knew the response to ‘Jesus is Risen’ ‘He is Risen Indeed’. We all knew The Lords Prayer. We all understood the Gospel being read in French and English.
The Bible is my ‘Universal Translator’. If someone has a Bible, and reads a passage, it is so easy with good translations to see how someone else speaks the same passage. It would be a very quick way to learn new languages.
I loved it that the Children were eager to read out loud from the Bible. How unselfconsciously they were eager to read out loud. Stumbling over difficult words at Seven years old is a delight to hear. When do we become so self conscious?
I love to hear and read Liturgy as well, it reminds me of the effort the Saints made to formulate clear concepts of worship. I also love Choral music. Yesterday, the only song all the Children and Adults knew was ‘Jesus Loves Me’. So we all sang that.
I am wondering where that Chinese Spacejunk came down, I thought I would share my Morning thought first. I need to do some reading, I have Fosdicks Meaning Of Prayer to read.
