grace stations of the resurrection went well last night. 19 readings of the resurrection appearances were placed around the edge of the worship space. it was a bring your own station service so you never know who is going to bring something. but 10 stations appeared. the thing i was most pleased about in a way was that three people who have never taken part in producing something for grace produced stations including two guys who had never even been to grace before. our ethos of participation is alive and well.
simplest ideas are often the best. i really liked the damscus road - as you walked into the area where the station was, written on the floor were the words 'saul saul why do you perscute me?' and there were some dazzling garden lights set up that were triggered as you entered that space. the damascus road strikes me a something that could be explored as an idea for a whole service some time...
things are looking up had a pair of shoes suspended from a wire overhead which was a fun idea. hopefully all the ideas/stations will get written up and added to the grace archive in the next week or two.
i set up a station using the art of he qi which i have referred to before. there are several pieces on the resurrection so i just put them into a slide sequence that looped round. i have made a small quicktime video of the sequence if you are interested. there are galleries of he qi's work on his web site. well worth a browse.
