Awkward Moments in Church

Yesterday I was a guest preacher at the English service of a Chinese church.  Delightful people.  Very friendly.

At the end of the service, after announcements and have-a-great-week I stood up and starting talking to my wife about how my teaching went and what we should do for lunch and wondering how Boy was doing in nursery… Until I noticed that everyone else was still silent with heads bowed.  The whole church.  And there I was standing in the middle blabbing away.

I casually side-stepped to some people at the back and asked what was going on.  She said that sometimes a few people take a moment of silence before leaving… But this morning it happened to be everyone taking a moment of silence simultaneously.  Nothing planned or announced or coordinated.  Apparently Chinese people are psychic or something.  Good to know.
