I need your help. If you have taken part in any one of these before, then might I ask another contribution from you… fairly urgently (before the evening of Sat 5th Sept 2015 please!)
The text I need recording is from Rachel Held Even’s brilliant “Searching for Sunday”. Please record:
Church – a place where we love to throw parties, tell stories, find hope, and practice the ways of Jesus best we can.
We are all hurt or hungry in our own ways.
We’re at different places on our journey but we share a guiding story, a sweeping epic drama called the Holy Scriptures.
We find faith as we follow Jesus and share a willingness to honestly wrestle with God and our questions and our doubts.
We find dignity as Gods image bearers and strive to call out the dignity in one another.
We all receive, we all give.
We are old, young, poor, rich, conservative, liberal, single, married, gay, straight, traditionalists, progressives, overeducated, undereducated, certain, doubting, hurting, thriving.
Yet Christs love binds our differences together in unity.
Church – a place where everyone is safe but no one is comfortable.
Imagine if every church became this sort of place?
Imagine if every church became a place where we told one another the truth.
We might just create a sanctuary…..
I will credit your voice at the end of the video, and it will be made freely available for use after the Holy Ground worship at Exeter Cathedral on 13th September
