Can We Stand a Little Silence?

Mark Dever’s church uses silence as an element of worship between
9Marks Ministries, Mark Dever, Capitol Hill Baptist Church
songs, Scripture readings, etc. I think thats a pretty cool idea. You can read his article over at the 9Marks blog for some of the reasons he feels like its beneficial to the church.

I really like how he says it “amplifies” what was just done. Almost as if it gives the words of Scripture time to echo in the minds of the hearers. I know often times I’m quick to jump up and launch us in to our next song after our Old Testament or New Testament readings. I think it may be worth a try sometime to insert some silence into our worship.
