Out of the mist
Involved in another wee creative project this weekend. A group of us getting together for 24 hours and hoping to produce a whole year's worth of creative worship material. It's amazing how much can be achieved in that time. Maybe the very pressure of time accelerates the creative process. Just imagine if every day of Lent was used as productively as this 24 hour slot. That whole discipline of taking time out intentionally with others was a very marked tradition in the early origins of Lenten observance. In our contemporary reduction of Lent to something for personal individual gain we've lost the whole corporate sense of journeying together for the deepening of faith for the whole community. Maybe it's time to reclaim that too.
