Shelley and the kids joined me in attending the youth-oriented "The Swell" worship service tonight. Rei noted with interest the movement/dance elements of the evening (perhaps I do have a budding liturgical dancer in my family) and Kai was intrigued by all the people, the live band and the big screen "TV".
Despite their extreme tiredness, the kids were very keen to stay for the entire time. It was nice to not have a leadership or presenting role in a service worship where I could sit and enjoy and fully participate and appreciate as a worshipper. Those times are rather few and far between.
It was pretty swell; whatever.
