At Church

It's always hard when there's a visitor there (or unfortunately, sometimes even a member) who's scoffing. There's something that just gives me the creeps when somebody is laughing about the hymns we're singing or something in the Psalms. I should be glad they're there, in the presence of God's word, hearing it. But there's something about people sitting there with us, making fun of what's going on, that makes me really uncomfortable.

There's a totally different discomfort when somebody has a favorite issue and outspokenly goes to pastors and says, "Here is where they need some improvement. Would you please start preaching more about how they should behave? They need to be told these things so that they can improve their Christian walk."

  1. Ooh, I'm glad I can't pick up on much of that from the organ bench. I can just enjoy the mahvelous hymn singing that almost lifts me off the bench.
