On Wednesday I was at an event at Lambeth initiated by the Fresh Expressions people, organised by Ian at Moot, aimed at engaging the catholic constituency in the C of E in conversation with various practitioners of 'emerging church' [like us]. Apparently there's very little overtly catholic involvement in ec / Fresh Expressions. Heard some good stories particularly of how the Mass is being given new energy in various youth contexts. Some of the guys are involved in something called Blessed in South London and they organised the Eucharist we shared. And good it was too, with a memorable moment when our confessions where put to the flame in dramatic fashion. Next step may be to have a pilgrimage, perhaps to Glastonbury, with an ancient-future theme. Sounds good to me.
