Priestland s Progress
Gerald goes to town on boring services. He looks at the history of worship. Should it be old‑fashioned or new‑fangled? Should it nourish, entertain, build up? Does God need it, or do we? As if that wasn’t enough, Gerald goes on to look at prayer. Is it a way of twisting God’s arm, or of lending Him our ears?
- Frankly, does your worship do anything for you? What do you give to it?
- What do you need and expect from worship?
- Has anyone ever helped you to enjoy worship?
- To pray is to join in the activity of God. What do you think this means?
“I think it’s a sort of getting in touch with the absolute, or allowing the absolute to get in touch with me, with us. I suppose I pray because I talk to God a lot when I’m driving my lorry, not formal prayers like, but I talk to Him.”
