« musings from the other side of the world 4: when church collapses | Main | holy week online »



We've just experimented with using Zoom to do the Palm Sunday dramatic reading of the passion gospel as a script recorded from 12 different locations with individuals, families and children. Not only gave us a chance to catch up with each other but was also a great way to engage with the reading in a different way to normal.

Thank goodness some common sense.What on earth did people do in concentration camps with HC ? They got on with it We are no longer in control any more than Jesus was when he called My God why have you forsaken me . lets lament and through that to a God of hope

Someone asked me years ago if poor people in the far East cd celebrate Communion with rice and rice water.
The question affords its own answer. How cd anyone think they cdnt?
The mindset which needs questioning is the one that produced the question in the first place! And wd it have been any different for rich people? God save us, oh mercifully save us.

Absolutely love an affirmation of faith that I believe you constructed. May I have permission to use for a pretaped Easter Vigil service? It would be on video as well as paper. Let me know. Thanks for your inspiration.

We believe in the God of Life
The world maker, the starlighter,
The sun shiner, the beauty maker;
Provoking evolution from nothing but words of love.
We believe in Life.

We believe in the risen Jesus,
The cross bearer, the tomb raider.
The hell-harrower, the death defier;
Embracing resurrection as the first-born from death.
We believe in life.

We believe in the Easter Spirit,
The life-giver, the breath bringer,
The body lover, the church birther,
Enabling communion with Jesus the Living One.

We believe in life.
We believe in the God of life,
World-maker, cross bearer, life-giver
Trinity of hope leading creation to its liberation.
We believe in God.
