Last night I was cleaning my desk area and found an old notebook. In it I found my notes from a church service that obviously frustrated me. I drive Meredith crazy when I go into a worship service (especially in a new place) and start instantly analyzing it. Getting past this was a HUGE prayer concern for a long time.
But I still have pet peeves surrounding worship design. Here are just a few.
1. Projection slides aren't "even"-meaning they are heavy at one side.
2. There is only male leadership on stage and in participation.
3. There is a non-conscious time space in between elements.
4. Microphones are not turned on quick enough, and every speaker has the first second cut out.
I am starting to write out more thoughts on The 10%, and I just wanted to see what your pet peeves are? What distracts you in worship?
