The blessing of empty spaces during worship

The time between the sections of Zoom worship may feel like an eternity to you, but one of the blessings that online worship offers us is the opportunity to rest into a slower pace.

Our online worship service gives us more space between words and music. We invite you to let these pauses become natural and comfortable to you. We encourage you to allow yourself to rest into the slower pace. May it enable you to celebrate the present moment, and maybe even sense it as a connection to the Divine.

As Miles Davis, trumpet player and jazz composer, said “it’s not the notes you play it’s the notes you don’t play.”

When you notice pauses in our church services each week, enjoy, and breathe deeply the presence of Spirit.

Who knows, we may bring more natural and comfortable connection and space with us when we return to worship services in our sanctuary?
