It’s not always in church that you find yourself the closest to God. But sometimes, it is. It had been three long weeks since the last time I stood with the congregation at WECC on Sunday morning singing songs of praise & worship. So much had happened in those three weeks- I had been in Africa for all three of them! It was good to be back in one of my favorite places, but if I was being honest I missed that other place too. While we were in Uganda the multi-talented Mandie Joy & friends led us in praise and worship several nights. One of their current favorite songs was a new one to me- but quickly topped my chart: Ten Thousand Reasons by Matt Redman. Imagine my delight when our worship leader asked us to “bear with him” as we learned a new song this past Sunday… and the words to the Matt Redman song appeared on the screen. Goose bumps. Sometimes I don’t feel super close to God in church- but sometimes I do.
