Quote from: goofy on April 29, 2009, 08:14:37 amwe have a big church, (3K on Easter) so when everybody does something it takes a bit longer than it would in a small church. i'd like to see a more free spirit in our church as well. I'd like to see flags and dance incorporated in the worship and praise section.On Palm Sunday anyone who wanted to picked up a palm frond and carried it into worship service. our worship leader had songs picked out and said that we should feel free to wave our palm fronds if we wanted to. you should have seen everyone waving them! More people felt free to wave those than we usually see hands waving, so the possibility is there to open up a bit. personally i'd like to open up a whole lot! I have a real problem keeping my hands still during worship and praise because all the flag movements keep going thru my head. I'd love to have the flags and dance troup as a regular part of worship. I'd love to see the great big "Jesus" banner being waved over the worshipers and the dancers leading people up and down the aisles in celebration, and to release the joy and blessing in praise to God. But our congregation and clergy comes from all sorts of backgrounds, and there are some who just aren't comfortable with celebrating during worship.

Quote from: j4gong on April 30, 2009, 03:03:49 pm i think it is because i just know inside the bible, i can't quote it or even tell you were a lot of the verses are, i just know, know what i mean. i have the life knowledge of what the bible says, not the study, scholar knowledge.

Quote from: JJ on April 30, 2009, 08:52:14 pmWhat's in your heart? What do you like? What do you feel drawn to? What is it you can't seem to get your mind off of concerning spiritual matters?
Quote from: j4gong on April 30, 2009, 09:10:12 pm my heart is in emotional, mental and spiritual healing. there are so many people hurting out in the world and in the church. i have been through so much in my life, that i can relate to other peoples hurts and confusion with God. i know that God has let me go through all that i have so that i can help others heal.
