A HAYWOOD STREET REFLECTION BY: BROOK
Sometimes a picture really is worth at least a few hundred words.
I snapped this image on Wednesday, more or less just to make sure my camera was working. Later in the day, when I sat down at the computer to edit other photos, this unintentional image was the one that actually caught my eye.
What does worship at Haywood Street look like? It looks exactly like this. It is so meaningful, in and of itself, that it needs no brick or mortar. It is comprised of folks from all walks of life. It is a time, in the middle of the day, in the middle of the week, when people can place down their burdens, take comfort in the word, take comfort in each other.
And perhaps, what I see in this image that represents Haywood Street worship the most, is the person who is sleeping on the ground through the entire service. Because for me, there’s no sermon better than the sound of a weary Brother or Sister finally finding some rest.
