The Day 1 Corinthians 14 came to Bedford Acres

So, the family and I have been attending Bedford Acres since July of this year, and I've been consistently amazed at what service has been like.   I've often wondered what it would be like if revival came through past church homes.   Basically, it'd be like a regular Sunday at BACC.

And today, the curveball.

The minister gets up on stage and announces, "I'm not preaching a sermon today," and this was the verse on the screen (1 Cor 14:29-31):

29 Let two or three prophesy, and let the others evaluate what is said. 30 But if someone is prophesying and another person receives a revelation from the Lord, the one who is speaking must stop. 31 In this way, all who prophesy will have a turn to speak, one after the other, so that everyone will learn and be encouraged

So, he posed to us: "What would happen if we did that today.  If you have something to say, a prayer, a thanksgiving, a confession, go for it.  This is completely unscripted, and I don't know what anyone's going to say."

I looked over at Whitney who was in the middle of an epic hayfever attack (1 box tissues  per hour) and our eyes were a little wider than ususal.  This was different.

I have to say, it was a privilege to be there, and this verse came out of one of the senior folks that got up to speak:
 (James 4:14) Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
 It's a testament to the Spirit that nearly everything that was said revolved around this, from the widow who'd lost her beloved, to those who stepped up to pass on the Gospel to new folks, because we're all here for a short time in Eternal terms.

Neat. Stuff.
