This Sunday's music was brilliant, as someone said after, 'they looked like they had fun" indeed.
I was feeling sick which was too bad since the passion and inspiration of this movie was lost in my kleenex and throat lozenges.
Selma certainly provoked the questions:
Can anything good come out Selma (or Nazareth)? Yes, of course something can!
What does prophecy require? Prophecy requires prophetic inside knowledge of systems, to transform those systems, to break rules, to bring change.
How can movements take place? Movement can only happen when we build bridges to those who are different and yet similar in truth, like the arts, governments, business, etc.
The experience of Ash Wednesday on the streets of Kensington was a metaphor for how and who we might become as a Hillhurst United city church. Literally building bridges with culture.
What would I change? Not much since my health limited the passion of the day.
Our annual financial meeting after was brilliant. It was an excellent presentation that spoke of our MOVEMENT, OUR BRIDGE, OUR PROPHETIC voice that answers the question can anything good come out of HUC. I say YES!
