Now that we have finished a pretty pretty heavy schedule of activity during Passion( Holy) Week @ Mosaic Life I’ve had some time to reflect on what we did and its spiritual impact.
On one hand it felt like we had a just bit too much going on. So maybe we will scale back a bit next year. One the other hand our church community was really blessed by our Seder dinner. Many of our faith community as well as some who were not made good use of our labyrinth and other spiritual practices during the week. One of the few people who came out to the Passion of the Christ showing stuck around after to thank me personally for making it available.Two of our six grade boys decided to fast on Good Friday with the rest of the faith community. Our Good Friday worship was the first experience for a church shopping family who returned for the Easter Egg hunt and Easter worship. We met many people from the community Easter egg hunt, including some residents of Eastown who thanks me for our work in the community and another who asked how we could get others churches to be as involved. We had great participation in worship on resurrection Sunday with God’s vision for us reflected in those who were present all ages, races, social backgrounds and faith expressions.
So all in all it was a time of connecting and deepening spiritual activity. So maybe we won’t change anything. uh-oh maybe this is how traditions are born
