Weekly Worship Thought – Eye Communication

Our eyes communicate a lot. Even though our mouth is often obscured by a microphone, our smile can be generated through our eyes just as much. Connecting our eyes to those in the assembly can be an encouraging gesture of invitation, to join us in worship, especially during songs with horizontal lyrics like, “we will glorify” and “we worship you.” Try not to focus on those people sitting closest to the front of the room. Make visual eye contact with everyone by looking toward the back of the room. I occasionally look at the front of the balcony on the back wall, so that my sight is inclusive of the whole assembly. Our eyes also can communicate focus and attention. If someone is speaking, turn your body and look directly at them. Doing this will be a visual cue for anyone looking at you that their attention should instead be focused on the person speaking.
