The call to worship prayer implies that the setting is within our Church or does it?
“Forest Church doesn't literally have to be in a forest... it could be in a churchyard or garden, in a local park, on derelict land earmarked for development - anywhere outside.'”
I have only completed two blogs in July, this is the last one for this Month, It’s an interesting time to say the least, we are all getting used to new ways of communicating, I had never used Zoom before but now it has become a regular form of communicating, it has its drawbacks the speed of the internet connection being the main one ( a narrower band width means you can lose connection, going Mute is another) but in reality this is a bit like a normal conversation even a one to one if we are surrounded by noise then sometimes we fail to hear or we hear incorrectly, the words we use are open to interpretation and how they are delivered can cause issues. At the start of this script is a reference to Forest Church, a Roots project for August 2020 looking at different ways of worshipping, in my last Blog I touched on the new ways we using to keep us all connected, and as the rules change nearly daily we have to also keep to the forefront of our mind what Jesus would want us to do. To help enrich the lives of all those that we meet day to day, but have we ever attempted to hold a conversation in a noisy restaurant or a crowded train, it’s not easy – it may be no easier in a forest glade, where we could be competing with bird noise and the sound of the wind through the trees.
