This week we start a new series called ‘Raising the Sail’. Abby Lanyon-olver starts with a talk titled ‘Kissing the Face of God – the spiritual, relational practice of worship’, looking at Psalm 22v1-11. When we talk about a ‘time of worship’, we often think primarily of the act of singing. Abby dispels this view to include times of silence, prayer and reading God’s word amongst other things. We may find it easy to worship some of the time, but at other times it is difficult and uncomfortable. As we look at Psalm 22, we see that David was in a hard place but still cried out to God in worship. This reminds and encourages us that worship is two-way relationship with our Heavenly Father.
