I had a phone conversation this morning that went something like this:
Lady: Hi, I'm from out-of-town and plan to attend your church (*note: the church where I work, not where I am a member) this Sunday and I have a few questions.
Me: Okay, great. What can I help you with?
Lady: I see communion will only be at your late contemporary service and I need to take communion this week. Is your service ultra contemporary?
Me: I'm not sure what you mean by that. There are modern praise songs played with guitar, piano, and drums, but there is still traditional liturgy included in the service.
Lady: Okay, so it's not all that hand waving junk, then?
Me: (*At this point, completely at a loss for what to say.) I actually don't attend this church so I'm not sure if anyone raises their hands in worship or not.
Lady: Oh, okay. Can I just come and take communion then?
Me: (*Closed communion and I have NO authority to tell her yes so I say) I think it would be best if you spoke with our Pastor. He's in this morning.
I'm just baffled. Of course this is coming from me who sang this song in church on Sunday. Enjoy!
I love thinking about "Oh how He loves us" - All of us!
All of us! And I'm so thankful that He does!!
