On Sunday 11th October Naomi will be speaking to us from Habakkuk, as she begins our new sermon series ‘Worshippers in the Wilderness’. In this series we will be looking at a few different Biblical characters whose worship took a variety of forms, learning together how we can “interrupt our preoccupation with ourselves and attend to the presence of God” (as Eugene Peterson said).
As you read through this scripture you might like to consider the following questions;
- Have you had experiences of “keeping silence” before God in worship? What was that like?
- As you ponder the idea of silent worship, what thoughts or feelings come to the surface?
- You might like to try spending a short time in silence on a few occasions this week (eg 5 minutes at a time), focussing your attention on God’s presence with you. What do you notice?
