What to do this Sunday – 27 April 2014

Not able to go to church this Sunday – don’t worry. Here is a short act of worship.

 

Firstly still your minds, concentrate on breathing slowly and letting go of the future.

 

Focussing on the ‘now’  by relaxing into the music clip below.

 

Read the story of Christ appearing to disciples articularly Thomas who doubted that Jesus had risen.

Imagine yourself as being in the story.

 

Remember how quickly you bolted the doors

against the authorities

that were roaming the streets outside.

 

Feel the fearful anxiety of all

that seems to oppress you

at the moment.

 

Now see Jesus just standing there.

 

Do you believe?

Do you believe he is real?

Do you believe that he can help?

 

Tell him what you need help with in your life.

 

Then think yourself into being Doubting Thomas.

 

Bring to the surface all your doubts

about the risen Jesus

and his ability to help you.

 

Tell him about them

and give him time to reassure and to promise.

 

Hear him say ‘stop doubting and believe’!

 

When you are ready – whisper

‘My Lord and my God’

 

Slowly return to the world that waits you

but keep in your heart the thought – I believe.

 

Please now pray:

 

I lay my head to rest
and in doing so
lay at your feet
the faces I have seen
the voices I have heard
the words I have spoken
the hands I have shaken
the service I have given
the joys I have shared
the sorrows revealed
I lay them at your feet
and in doing so
lay my head to rest
