stripping worship

“It’s like you’ve got this room, the same room at the end of the day, but you’ve cleared it out and lined it with red velvet and beautiful standing lamps and nice chairs with ivory castors.” – quote from pop band Goldenhorse, about playing their songs with an orchestra.

I read this yesterday and it resonated with what we are trying to do at Opawa service wise. Worship tends to be quite plain; songs, talk, home. So why not strip it out and line it with image and imagination and participation and Scripture and prayer and space to think and contemporary music, alongside the song and the talk.

It will be the same room at the end of the day – worship – but a lot richer. And in doing so you appeal to the whole person, and allow multiple entry points for people on their God journey.
