When Worship Runs Over 59 Minutes
Looking out from the pulpit, I saw a clock that was situated to be seen only by my predecessor, successor, or...me.
Though I've been wrong on many things and could remain wrong on this one, I guessed/guess it meant/means I was/am not to worship Him for too long.
While you can decide if it was/remains an inspiration or indigestion, I blurted, "What's up with the clock?"
Then I recalled His enfleshment, passion, resurrection, reign, and the apocalypse of heavenly worship.
Gratitude was/remains the focus.
Whenever I worship, I remember that...moment.
I have not worn a watch in worship since seeing that clock that was situated to be seen only by...
"How shall I receive You into my house,
I that scarce know how to spend one
half hour in true devotion?
Would that I could even once spend
something like one half hour
Groote aka Kempis, Imitation of Christ, 1374
