I heard about a church today that orders its liturgy around "A Time for..."
I love it.
What would it be like to have a liturgy that hung on:
A time for welcome
A time for peace
A time for friendship
A time for letting go, making amends
A time for reflection
A time for sorrow
A time for celebration
A time for risk
A time for belonging
A time for wondering
A time for gratitude
A time for blessing
Hmm. Maybe a little long, but I like framing worship in a way that is accessible and participatory...and different.
I also would love to engage our adults in a faith formation series that included a writing of a statement of faith just like we ask confirmation students to do.
What else. Hmmm. The idea of boards and commissions becoming spiritual communities....there is a book about that, I think. I don't know it.
I just wanted to remember these thoughts.
On to supper, and then meeting.
Peace to you!
