SUNDAY SERVICE GISTS (21/09/14)

16

African American Congregation
I have been planning to make up for my 40 minutes lateness to church last week sunday, but unfortunately I’m spending my sunday on the road 🙁 . But i’ll be excited to read about how your service in church today went.
How was your service? What was unique/fun/inspiring/frustrating/amusing/turn-on/turn-off…about church today? What did you learn? What kept you going despite the urge to doze 😉 How did your neighbours cologne or short dress help with your concentration? Stuffs like these, but not limited to these.
Read last week’s gists HERE, the person that spent 8 hours in church, the lady whose chubby neighbour inconvenienced her all through the service, Ruth, Rika and Jumoke’s exclusively funny gists of “as usual boring service while checking her phone a million times, the breakfast pomo and the screaming preacher.
I’m looking forward to today’s gists. Remember to be “real” as much as possible. Happy Sunday everyone.

Psalm 84 (NLT)

1. How lovely is your dwelling place,
lord of Heaven’s Armies.
2. I long, yes, I faint with longing
to enter the courts of thelord.
With my whole being, body and soul,
I will shout joyfully to the living God.
3. Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow builds her nest and raises her young
at a place near your altar,
lord of Heaven’s Armies, my King and my God!
4. What joy for those who can live in your house,
always singing your praises.
5. What joy for those whose strength comes from the lord,
who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
6. When they walk through the Valley of Weeping,
it will become a place of refreshing springs.
The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings.
They will continue to grow stronger,
and each of them will appear before God in Jerusalem.
8. lord God of Heaven’s Armies, hear my prayer.
Listen, O God of Jacob.
Interlude
9. O God, look with favor upon the king, our shield!
Show favor to the one you have anointed.
10. A single day in your courts
is better than a thousand anywhere else!
I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God
than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.
11 For the lord God is our sun and our shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The lord will withhold no good thing
from those who do what is right.
12 O  lord of Heaven’s Armies,
what joy for those who trust in you.

  1. Today I went to a new church. It was nothing fantastic, I dint learn anything from the service. I was the person with the distracting cologne. I met a sweet family. I sat beside this couple who kept going back and forth. I was distracted by the couples in church who are into public display of affection. While they were cuddling, I was seriously missing my Love.

    1. Eeyah…Lool…I think when we are in church. we should be concious of how our actions affects people around us, as much as what the couples were doing was good, the place was just not it. Sorry to hear about your sunday experience, hoping next week’s going to be better. I hope you’ll come and share it here.

  2. Service today was awesome. We had a guest preacher from Liverpool UK nd he talked abt being a giant using d story of Jesus calming d storm in d sea.twas way far 4rm Wat I hear 4rm our chaplains.. In short, twas wonderful

  5. Church was wonderful.. actually tot it would be a sleepy sunday for me… bcus I didnt sleep for better part of the night…sermon was about esau and jacob. My revd. In his popular jiking manner lite up my service and the choir Was amazing as always..

    1. Every good comment about service always have the element of good music. Note to pastors reading. Tomi, thanks for sharing.

  6. Service today was about renewing your vow with your spouse, felt like getting married after the “Love wantintin” ministration by the choir. Also enjoyed the sermon tagged: “Building for Tomorrow; Matthew 7: 24-27”.

    1. Samskill…you are free now, at least nothing is stoping her too 😉

  7. What happened in today’s service always happens to me every service. Whenever the preacher said to look to our neighbours, the neighbours on both left and right would look to their other neighbours. What is wrong with my face? Or maybe its my breath? And that’s why I started chewing gum o, just to be sure.

    1. Lmao! If i’ve never seen or met you, my reply probably would av bn different, but don’t whine yourself Feyikemi 😀 About the breath…hmmm… *pensive, ask your friends na…lool.
      Thanks for sharing tho, but this is a funny one

  8. This was the first time this month I went to church *facepalm* and service was awesome :D…I didn’t realize how much I’d missed worshiping with God’s people till while I was in service. It wasn’t boring at all, I can’t imagine where else I could have been at that time. Halleluyah!!!

  9. Yesterday was boring lik last week. Once I know who is preaching u can predict the Service. Chior ministration 0 preSentation 0 sermon sleepy 0. Group meeting alwayS on point. I don’t know why the main service will be boring and the group service will mean more. Pastor should plS pay attention to Ruth’s Advice from last week. Then plS pple shld always always take care of themselves I mean I could hardly breath where I sat during the service I don’t know if it was mouth odor or body odor, kilode I almost vomitted wash ur mouth well and pls and pls uSe body spray perfume etc jt smell gud n luk gud. Thank you. I’m out of here.
