There is the potluck meal, of course—the setting for our worship. And we always have the open communion of the Lord’s Supper—the bread and cup. What gives the worship its structure is less a liturgy, and more of a series of questions:
Would anyone like to pray for our meal?
Where did you see/experience God this week?
What is your prayer today?
Is anyone feeling called to pray for our prayers tonight?
What is your word of blessing upon this gathering?
What word or phrase will you take with you from this worship tonight?
About the time we pass around the cookies and cut the desserts, we ask questions that help us explore scripture or our discussion topic for the evening. Questions are so powerful—often more powerful than answers. So, we live the questions together. Somewhere in this midst of all of this, we hope that worship occurs and that God is pleased.

Set a table, invite Christ and others, leave an empty chair, serve up some powerful questions, and break bread.
