Mark Batterson has an AWESOME blot post about a distraction in the church service.
Being a church that’s open to the Spirit, we run this risk every Sunday. I often have said, if you’re going to dance, please feel free to do that in the back. Oddly, that offended one person. Claimed I was quenching the Spirit.
Fortunately, he got over it and stayed for a couple years. I bet he still considers the Vineyard Church of Waterville as “his” church.
I like Mark’s comment on thinking of the group of people, the flock. It’s very different being in the “captain’s chair” (as my sending pastor calls it)!
Preaching through Acts, these kind of interpersonal encounters are central to this Kingdom life.
