I often wonder how people perceive me when I’m leading worship… Now I have and idea

Yesterday morning at church, while I was introducing what we were going to do during worship I noticed one of the children drawing. It wasn’t until we were about to start working in groups that I realised what she had done. During those few minutes of explanation she had been drawing a picture of me, and she came to show me what she had drawn with a big smile on her face.

I have to say I was impressed with the attention to detail in those few minutes, the window behind me you can see the outline of the baptism font and candle, you can see the design in the iron work of the communion rail, you can even see the microphone on the pulpit and on me… Considering I had a black shirt on and the roving microphone is black that’s quite impressive. 

I don’t think I’ve ever been drawn before in worship…

I do sometimes wonder how I come across from the front, looking at this picture I’m at least smiling!

    That is so lovely! I hadn’t realised what she was drawing. I know I was worried when I started at church and asked if it was OK for her to draw and colour and was fine. Glad you liked what she made. She does have a real eye for detail!
