Today in church, when we did prayers of intercession, the preacher (who happened to be my dad, though that's not really relevant) asked people to name whoever they wanted to pray for after he opened. That prayer felt very powerful to me.
It seemed like a toy hovercraft: there are many little holes letting out air. None of them on their own can hold the vehicle up, but together they can. Everyone in the church was like one of those holes, pushing people up to God. There was a real sense of unity, especially with the speaking out loud.
I wanted to share that moment and that feeling, so I thought I'd put it here. Besides, it's good to start blogging again.
