If the people of your church were to show up on Sunday morning, and â€œthe showâ€ were canceled for the morning, would they know what to do?
The question is difficult to answer for me, because we don’t really have a “show.” While there are certain things that we do when we meet together, those things and the order of them can change from week to week. Similarly, the people who take part changes from week to week.
But, still, I wonder… what would happen if everyone who had planned to take part was not able to meet with the church that day… It is an intriguing question.
Think about the next time you plan to meet with the church. If you showed up and none of the normal leaders were there to get things started, no one started playing music, no one stood up to teach/preach, nobody was there to read from Scripture… what would the people do? What would you do?
