Hard to get very far into meditation in this forum

I did not enjoy this. It felt too New-age. If that was the type of
15
service I was seeking, I would be attending a different church.
16
Especially during the Lenten season, I felt like it took away from the
17
celebration of Jesus' life and teachings.

I think it is good that you are looking at our services and trying new
20
things, BUT....it seems to me that during this time of transition
21
continuity might be more important, leaving some of the new ideas for
22
a new pastor, after she/he is installed and settled. I am concerned
23
about the decreasing number of people in the congregation during
24
Sunday services. Perhaps too many new things?
25
26
keep the prayer flags up - they add a nice brightness to the sanctuary
27
28
I like the reminder from the pulpit that our minds tend to be
29
cluttered by thoughts that get in the way of worship. I like the
30
reminder to set that clutter aside and be open to my own faith.

32
Members should continue to be thoughtfully reflective during Lenten worship.

34
While I appreciate that you wanted to try something new, I personally
35
prefer a more traditional service and hymns. Truthfully, I was
36
considering looking at different churches had this worship style
37
continued. Our Congregation is a caring and personable. I don't think
38
we need to be too creative. Silence is good and welcomed as
39
reflection, but personally, please no formal meditation. Thank you for
40
your time and commitment. What drew me to SACC,aside from Katrina is
41
one could sit in a pew and just 'be'. Thank you!

OTHER NOTES FOR THE DEACONS
44
45
Yes, I think Liz or whomever is leading the service should indicate
46
during the service when we should sit and not stand for some hymns. It
47
is confusing when some of us stand, some sit; there are times when
48
sitting during a hymn is appropriate and should be noted.
49
50
Continue to encourage members to "pass the peace" at the conclusion of
51
the service.
