audience of one

When you go to church, do you sing about me or to me? The fact that you refer to your meetings as worship services should suggest a preferred answer. A performance requires an audience, which may be few or many, and the connection between the performer and the audience may be intimate or distant. You refer to your faith as a relationship with me and I invite you to come to as close a level of intimacy as you can tolerate. Let your worship be an expression of this. The singing you do in church and elsewhere may be structured so that other people are listening, or not. In any case consider yourself to be performing for an audience of one.
