Military Chapel's are unique places to say the least. First you have the most transient people in the world coming to a service, which typically is different from week to week. Even as being a Chaplain, I have seen them range from quality services to something quite unusual. ((If you have been there you know what I am talking about)).
Yet despite all the variants I have concluded in the local church and Chapel, there is never going to be a perfect worship service or 'Church' until we, the church, stand before the Throne of God. I think in His presence, we will not concern ourselves so much with ourselves but be overwhelmed with Him.
Ok, what's this have to do with Korean Church.
Simply this: I am not Korean. I don't speak it, write it. I do want to adopt a Korean Baby. That's about it. This Sunday though, my wife and I attended the Korean Service at Baumholder. It was at this service that I got yet another glimpse of something. It was this: God is Holy and I am not. How did I hear this seeing that I don't speak the language. Very simply, I got quiet and quit worrying about me and my negativity and just resolved to listen to God.
And there in the Korean Service, God spoke clearly to my heart through Deuteronomy 24:17-22. I saw God's Holiness, and my disregard to hear him. I have placed so many things in my life from Xbox, Itunes, and 100 other idols that simply satisfy my flesh, that I don't hear God.
I don't know about you, but I am a wonderful musician about orchestrating a thousand other things that drown out the voice of God.
Thank you,...Korean Church...it was my inability to understand your service that I heard God.
