#8 In our “material world” we are so quick to throw things away…out with the old and in with the new! As part of our moving project I’ve been upcycling an old bureau, which has been really enjoyable. It’s also made me think about tradition versus the latest and greatest, particularly in church. Rather than swapping our old hymn books, pews and traditions for bands, worship songs, and chairs to reach more people, perhaps it is possible to hold these things in tandem. If we take the best from both places we design worship for God which expresses something of each person who is taking part – how exciting is that!?
