Set up a worship center in your home using symbols of the season and our faith, i.e. cross (make one from twigs if you don’t have one), large nail, Bible, small lamb, chalice, candle, bird’s nest, spring blooms.
Contrary to popular opinion a worship center is not the sanctuary of the church where you spend a couple of hours on Sunday mornings even though that’s what came up when I googled it.
The worship center of each of us is the soul of each of us.
What is treasured in my heart, that mysterious part we call the soul, is what or who I worship. Perhaps an indicator of my treasure is how I spend my time, what I pay attention to, where I put my money. That is a thought to ponder seriously.
Setting up a worship center in your home may or may not reflect what’s in your heart. It’s like wearing a cross necklace. It does not necessarily mean I have faith.
Just something to consider as we continue on our 40-day journey. That being said, let me continue.
I like decorating my fireplace mantle for the seasons. The beginning of March I wanted touches of spring. Pussy willow branches in an old galvanized watering can, greenery and a framed print of blue birds building a nest. I look at it and know spring is coming despite the cold blustery weather that remains.
I decided to set up my worship center for this season, the coming of Passover and holy week, on an old table at the front door. It’s where I pass often. It’s the place guests enter. It’s a visual reminder for my piano students on Thursday evenings .
It will not show you what is in my heart. Only God sees there. But I do want it to remind me. I hope it will focus me. I pray it will cause me to stop and think about the season and what it means to have a God who loves me so much He was not willing to live without me.
