try this improvisation : small = good?
Enjoyed our first shared worship gathering with our buddies from hOME yesterday. We met up at our summer home (also on high days and holidays) ancient Bartlemas chapel - then on to the Angel for a pint. It was very good to share Eucharist, and good to continue in the spirit of Eucharist at the pub. We were working with 2 of Jesus' parables of small things - the mustard seed and yeast. As our improvisiation we took pics on our phones of small stuff around us - here's a pic of a small creature that someone spotted. Seems to me that in our setting and calling smallness can actually be a strength - enabling authentic Christ-community to happen, and creating space in which people might bump into, and begin to orientate themselves towards, Christ. Small = good?
