“God of our fathers, whose almighty hand leads forth in beauty all the starry band” (Hymn #718)
On my first Sunday at Canterbury (July 5, 2015) I invited everyone in worship to listen for a word or phrase in the readings that spoke to our best hope or prayer, or God's greatest dream and call for us, as we moved together into a new day in our life as a household of faith.
Three years later (July 1, 2018) we did the same exercise. The responses are recorded, below. As you read each list, prayerfully consider these questions:
What did we hear the Spirit saying to us?
In the days to come, I hope we'll return to this list often, as together we continue to discern God's dream unfolding among us!
