This is something Ruth and I recorded a couple of years ago to use in online worship. We used it as part of our Stations of the Cross service on YouTube this afternoon. The Jesus Film footage is very kindly being allowed for use in online worship. I made contact with them and filled in the necessary forms. This crisis is really showing the best in people. The number of resources people are giving away free is amazing.
Last night at the Rock Mass we were looking at the interaction between Jesus and the Woman at the Well. I know someone who works for Yorkshire Water so we had an installation of a stand pipe in the centre of church. This linked in with the use of the well known “to be known is to be loved” monologue.
For the confession we used Holy Water by Inglorious. As the God’s forgiveness was pronounced, the priest sprinkled the congregation with the holy water from underneath the standpipe. After exploring what it means for God to welcome in the outsider, the stranger and the alien, we wrote our prayers on the giant blue paper cross with chalk whilst Metanoia played Where the Street’s Have No Name.
Tonight at Rock Mass we used this Kinetic Typography of Luke 6:20-21. The service was all about poverty. If you like it use it. With the black background you can drop it on top of a different coloured background. I think that’s what I will do in future.
This morning’s preacher just showed this wonderful reflection on the woman at the well.
