Real Slow

Letter to the Editors

Regarding “Slow Down and Know that I am God,” by C. Christopher Smith (December 2012): A real “slow church” would be one where there was no planned-weeks-or-years-in-advance church services and where the Holy Spirit was allowed to be in actual charge of the services. There would be no time limit on how long a service would last. Those in attendance would be allowed to participate as the Lord wills. Paul wrote about this in 1 Corinthians. A “slow church” wouldn’t be an entertainment center with a band and worship singers, with words flashed on a TV screen, as in many churches today.
