This is a sad idea.
The other day I stumbled upon Habakkuk 2:20 which says “But the LORD is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him.” This verse hit me in the face when I read it and has continued to beat on my consciousness ever since. I am struggling with questions like: what does it mean to “keep silence before Him”? Do I ever have silence in my life? Do I embrace silence or run from it? Is silence before God an integral part of my relationship with Him or something that I drown out with continuous noise? Why am I afraid of the silence?"
I find it very revealing that our goal nowadays seems to be to create a "traditional" service or a "contemporary" service. What ever happened to leading people into God's presence. Where did Jesus get to anyway? See Johnny's three posts earlier this week on this topic.
