Consider Those "In Between" Words - From Reformed Worship
Spoken transitions in a worship service
“In between” words are those little words and phrases that welcome guests, introduce songs, and prepare us for prayer. Scripture readings, sermons, and songs take up most of the time in worship, but often the transitions we use in between them make all the difference for encouraging full participation. In fact, when we don’t think about the words we say, we can end up communicating messages that are inhibiting, inaccurate, or even hurtful.
