blogging about bread

By August 19, 2009Church

I don’t know if I’ve ever blogged about a sandwich before.  But this one was too good to let pass.  I ate lunch today at The Corner Bakery here in Highlands Ranch and ordered a Poblano Fresco on Poblano Cheese Bread.  Wow!  Here’s what came on it: Roasted red peppers, avocado, white cheddar cheese, crisp jicama slaw, lettuce, and spicy chipotle lime mayo.  I added roast beef and it pushed it over top.  The mixture of flavors and textures was outstanding.

It made me think of how we (pastors/worship leaders) often present God — do we provide a mixture of flavors and textures?  The crisp jicama (pronounced “Hicama”) slaw by itself would not have had the same effect as it did when mixed with the roasted red peppers.

Our worship and teaching needs to have a mix of sights and sounds, ups and downs, high energy and solitude.  Not every ingredient needs to be included in equal proportions in every service.  Pacing and placing are important.  People learn in different ways.  Do we teach and present in different ways?
