Our church does something kind of strange. We take a ten-minute break in the middle of worship. People use this time to pass the peace, catch up with friends, grab a cup of coffee or make a quick trip to the bathroom. In many ways, it is an intermission during worship. But to make it more than that, each week we have a large group mission project that everyone can participate in. This reminds us that following Jesus is about making the world a better place. So our intermission is an opportunity to Enter-Mission.
