Hi Jonny,

Really enjoyed and was inspired by Saturday's worship - Do Be.

Perhaps the planning group thought of this and discarded it, but as an additional worship trick on this theme, we might have had a responsorial liturgy, where those with glasses of one colour would have been unable to read the phrases being said by those with the other colour. Or a prayer read together, where the words mostly coincided for both groups but occasionally differed.

On Saturday, as we contrasted apparently contradictory statements from Jesus, it made me focus on the different ways he treated people - to some he was harsh, to others gentle. Made me think about what he would say to me...

Thanks again, Grace is an important resource for my ministry and discipleship



that is a brilliant idea. you should join a planning group! if you fancy drafting a liturgy let me know.
