TITLE: Secret Worshipers
By Brenda Welc


Hurry! Follow me.
We are almost there.
Shhhhhh. Be quiet.
Watch out!
Stand back! Their steps are heavy and their screams are loud.
We are here. Now settle in and behold the view and the sounds.

Have you ever been to place of such splendor? Look at the silver cross hanging up front. See the red velvet on the wooden seats? Bet they are comfortable to sit in but we are not allowed out there. Have you ever heard such beautiful music? It makes you want to get up and shout with praise. This is where they come to worship. Sometimes there are only a few members, often times several, just depends on the day. They shake hands and hug. They cry and laugh. When I first started coming here I was confused, I had no idea who they were talking about. I started coming every Sunday and now I understand.

Persons come here to pray for the earth and the people who dwell in it. They ask God to heal others and provide for their needs. They listen to the most wonderful music and sing with voices so loud and praiseful. Each person seems to come here for renewal of some sort and together they worship the God who created all of us creatures.

This God of whom I speak, cares for all of us no matter what size or shape. He provides all of our needs and takes care of each of us in our daily lives. No wonder persons worship God in groups, there is so much to be thankful for one creature would just be too overwhelmed with the thanks needed. When I first started attending the services there were only a few of us, but look at us now, there are many worshipers. We love to come here and listen to the music, dwelling in the presence of our Creator.

The more we told others about God, the more excited they became. Soon one would tell another and then, well, here we are worshiping God the best we can. No silly, the humans donít know we are here, if they did I think we would not be so welcomed. Oh, here comes the best part, the pastor speaks. He translates what God wants to say to the people. He gets really excited sometimes and it gets my tail a twitching. It is so much fun worshiping God here in the back of the baptismal place, no one but God knows we are here.

Well, I hope to see you here again next Sunday.
Bring a friend or two.
The more the merrier.
Yes, we mice need a place to worship too, after all we are one of Godís creations.
Be careful on the way out, be quiet as a church mouse.

Very creative way of pointing out all the aspects of corporate worship. Nicely done - though starting next Sunday, I'm checking under the pews! :)

How imaginative and creative! It shows God in all the little things! Thank you for your frank comment on my article,First Things First. I know I need honest feedback because I want to be God's voice to convict, not threaten. Shalah Rev.2:17 (Carol Shaffron)
