Have you given much thought to our worship bulletin? We asked the children, “Why do we have a different bulletin every week?” There were some insightful answers: “So we know what the hymn numbers are.” “It’s Ashton’s job.” We noticed some things about the bulletin, such as the space on the back to draw or write things we want to remember. We noticed that Pastor Ruth always gives a title to her sermon. This week the title was “G-D”. We remembered what Ruth said, about how the name of God is so holy that some people don’t say or write it. One person said we leave out the vowel because it reminds us that G-d is invisible. We noticed the graphic of the burning bush at the top of the order of worship, drawn by a WorshipArts graduate.
We decided to draw our own burning bushes. Such unique revelations!
Sometime soon we hope to sing the following song in worship. If you live with a WorshipArts kid, ask them to sing it for you:
He saw a bush that did not burn and yet it was aflame.
He stopped to look at it and heard a voice call out his name.
It called, “Moses! Moses!”
“Here I am!”
“Take off your sandals! All around is holy, holy ground!
Take off your sandals! All around is holy, holy, holy ground!”
