Why Worship at First Pres Was Good Today

Because Bob came early and made the coffee
Because Lori brought the donuts and Miss Beverly
Because Rachel shared a beautiful song
Because Katie and Kennedy brought a baby doll in a basket to teach the pre-schoolers about Moses
Because Gabe had read this week’s chapter in The Story and knew the answers to the children’s message questions
Because Martin was a great liturgist despite feeling a bit under the weather
Because Sadie cracked a smile when bringing up the offering
Because David sings loudly enough for the congregation to follow
Because new visitors from last week came back this week

Sure, the pastor was prepared to lead worship and to preach, but worshipping in community requires the participation of said community. That’s what really makes worship worshipful at First Pres. Thanks be to God and to everyone else who joined us today.
