The Nicest Part of a Worship Service
I don’t attend church services regularly. All the salvation talk is a little much. But when I do, my favorite moment is when the leader asks the congregation to give salutations to those around them. Strangers introduce themselves. Old friends share a handshake. Couples embrace.
In those gentle moments, when the warnings and imperatives have been silenced, replaced by a simple human gesture of kindness, I feel like God really does exist — and He or It is that beautiful spirit that makes us the exalted creatures we are.
