In the past year, I’ve been thinking a lot about worship.
Before I share my thoughts, I’m curious about your own experience in worshipping Jesus. What is worship like for you? If you would choose three words from the list below to describe the most shaping and memorable worship experiences of your life, what would those words be?
Corporate (you worshipped with others)
Musical (you or others were singing)
Empowering (you could do things you don’t normally do)
Private (you were alone, and glad of that)
Revelatory (you learned truth)
Stretching (you were slightly out of your comfort zone)
Participatory (you joined in something that was already happening)
Physical (your body got involved)
Voiced (you or others were speaking truth)
Led (someone else took charge and brought you to Jesus)
Ecclesiastical (your experience was connected to church somehow)
Transforming (you were different afterwards)
Regular (tied to your normal and habitual practices)
Scenic (you were moved to worship by the beauty of your surroundings)
Grateful/Responsive (you were moved to worship by an act of God)
Or choose your own words! but give me three or more if you can. Optional add-on: Does one word jump out at you as farthest from describing the worship you’ve loved?
Diversity is fine; don’t worry too much about what others are saying. And if this is an uncomfortably revealing activity for you, feel free to comment anonymously. I want to hear what you have to say.
