As nature intended

This morning, halfway through the Old Testament reading, I realised that folks' attention was on something else. We have two splendid clear glass windows behind the pulpit. Two deer were ambling past. So we paused for a moment to listen to God speaking through creation before returning to the Scripture.
If only we could be so distracted by God in our everyday tasks.

That's what I love about worship at Inverkip - its often so spontaneous. And people let me off with the traditional in favour of the real:)

Hope there are some deer for me next Sunday! I do love your windows and being able to see out on a Sunday morning. Reminds me of the church I used to visit on holiday when I was a wee girl.
If you see anything interesting next week, Rachel, please point it out!

I only have students and the occasional lawn-mower outside our College Chapel windows. Deer would be fab.
