There are some great ideas for this New Thing we are creating. Here are some of the ideas. Write me if you have more!
Worship is being broadcast from my home for the next 3 Sundays and likely more.
IDEAS: Everyone create a little worship space at home. Have your Bible and a candle.
This Sunday: Bulletin to be sent out later today. Wayne will play live through cell phone. Liturgists reads through Go To Meeting or cell phone. Sermon/interactive message about how we will celebrate Easter — The disciples were behind locked doors. They were afraid. What if we try to recreate a feel of the first Easter?
Next Sunday: Communion: What if we all have a cup and some bread that we will eat together?
Palm Sunday: Think about what makes a party. Imagine s famous person coming into town, A parade would have signs, sparkly pompom like shakers, etc. What if we all “show up” to facebook or go to meeting with our parade stuff that we would make if Jesus was coming to town?
Holy week: Each day a meditation on the Gospel of Mark’s story of what Jesus was doing.
Maundy Thursday: Last Supper: What if we all get our own meal and meet over Go to meeting and Facebook and talk about the Passover of Death as the Hebrew stayed in their homes, behind closed doors?
Good Friday: not certain if we should do something from noon to 3 or maybe only 2:30pm to 3 with scripture readings and candles.
Holy Saturday: meditation on the deep despair of the first Holy Saturday
Easter: Sunrise on Go To Meeting and Facebook — pajama party? We could stream our fire pit here at home, light candles, stream Wayne or Jan’s music, and pray together for the new life after this disaster.
Easter: 10:30 Music from Wayne over the phone. Flowering of cross: we could bringing in flowers from our yards or ones we could make out of paper and placing them near our “worship” space.
First Sunday, after Easter, Refection on Thomas
