It Happened During the Sunday Offering

November 17, 2015

Our ushers had just placed the offering plates on the altar table this past Sunday morning.

We had just sung The Doxology, the traditional chorus that begins, Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

The sanctuary was filled with echo of the end of that song.

As I was taking the one step to the mic to invite everyone to join the rest of us in The Prayer of Dedication onscreen, a child’s voice rang out with a loud, “YAY!”

It was my turn to give an “Amen” in worship.

“YAY!” is a pretty good summary of worship in general and The Doxology in particular.

When today have you already had reason to say “YAY!” for some of God’s good gifts?

Be watching for more.

And I’d love to hear from you about these.

See you back here tomorrow.

  1. Wish I had been there for an absolutely quintessential and appropriate response to the Doxology I have ever heard! Just wish we could keep that childhood unbridled enthusiasm!
