Seeing these beautiful garden sculptures, made with unused barbed wire from the adjacent farm, made me reflect that even our prickles and thorns can be transformed into creativity and aspects of grace.
Liturgy in a time of isolation
Are you missing your faith community?
Do you wish you could find some progressive, inclusive, contemporary liturgy while you can’t get to your regular church service?
This time of government or self-imposed isolation is ideal for polishing off those projects we’ve had in mind for a while: stash-busting for crafters, jigsaw-making for puzzlers, housework for procrastinators…
As we’re in the season of Lent, coming up to Easter, I’ve recorded myself reading some Easter-themed liturgy resources: prayers, poems, reflections, hymn lyrics. I’m not a professional video maker or worship leader, and they’re not the smoothest audio visuals in the YouTuberverse, but I hope you’ll enjoy and be inspired by them.
Here’s a link to my Easter – Passiontide – Liturgy playlist on YouTube.
You might even decide to buy one of my books, so you can read the resources in your own time. Blessings, and peace be with you in this strange Passiontide, as we face a suddenly ambivalent future.
Here are links to other progressive, inclusive, online resources:
St Andrew’s on The Terrace, Wellington
St Michael’s Uniting Church, Melbourne
Durham Street Methodist Church, Christchurch
