A Joyful Journey

A few observations August 29, 2008

Filed under: Random — martyschmidt @ 7:19 pm

After watching parts of the convention last night I’d like to share a few observations. Specifically the ways in which I observed church taking place.

  • Gathering – There were several people that came and watched.
  • Singing – Several styles with several voices.
  • Dancing – People felt at liberty to express themselves.
  • Corporate Reading – One example being the pledge of allegiance.
  • Video – The use of video was used to enhance the entire experience.
  • Testimony – Several speeches prior to Obama’s could fall in this category.
  • Teaching/Vision Casting – This was done in the last address made by Obama.
  • Celebration – Noticable throughout the night but ending with fireworks, confetti, and posters.

I’m not trying to make a point with any of the above statements. Just sharing some observations. What did you observe?
