In a protestant church after the lockdown
A sunday church service without singing
This morning for the first time after the lockdown I have been in a #church service. It was in a traditional protestant church
This is maybe the first time in my life that I go in a sunday church service. I grow up in catholic church and I disliked that.
Goad Discovering Exploration and Curiosity
I describe how it was organised and how I felt.
-At the entrance we must tell our name and give our phone number. In case of problem it will be easy for tracking + desinfection of hands
we sit at a minimum distance of 2 m 20 to 30 people are in the Church
I had huge problem of concentration.
It remind me a streaming service more than a real service
We didn’t sing. This is the firsttime in my life that I am going in a church without siging. I realised how important is singing. Singing have different name according to social groups. Evangelical call it worship. But singing is only a form. hearing music without singing seems so special. Sometime is missing. As far as I remember all christian groups use song in every meetings. The only exception maybe is bible study.
Analyse the form was for me more important that analysing the content.
An other thought came in my mind during the service. Instead of hearing the content I was thinking. Swiss people are really the oposite of spontaneous. They need to organised all. Maybe it was a reason why I am not comforatable. I don’t like or don’t know how to organise things and I like spontaneity. Maybe spontaneity is the only way I can do.
I really love christian groups because spontaneity was free. We can pray like we speak. No need to prepare. We can worship Goas as we are.
