I went to Shekinah tonight at Abbotsford New Life church. Shekinah is produced by the Hungry for Life organization, which is dedicated to the twin goals of feeding spiritually and physically hungry people.
Two and a half hours of music, prayer, worship, praise, and sermon – all at high tempo (and high volume). I think my ears have recovered now.
I had to think of Goethe’s saying about books when I reflected on the experience. He said that a good book is as an ax to a frozen lake. That’s what Shekinah was for me. Not everything they did was done the way I’d do it, and not every person attending reacted as I would, but maybe that’s not what matters.
What matters is that I met God there. Or, more importantly, God met all of us attending. And we worshipped, and we were changed.

One more thing: they had a video clip from an amazing pastor, Danny Ambrose, on the attributes of God. I have, have, have to find that clip or soundtrack.
