Another good Agapai this evening.
Agapai is our weekly church community meal … we eat together, talk, pray and share bread and wine.
For the last few weeks we have been considering the topics raised in ‘Dethroning Mammon‘, Archbishop Justin’s Lent book.
Tonight we talked about what is precious to us … based around the story of Mary pouring £25 000 worth of perfume over Jesus feet (which I spoke on last Sunday) in a chapter entitled ‘What we have we hold’.
We chatted tonight about what possessions are precious to us … homes, cars, sentimental value things; we spoke about how easy it would be to give these things away if people needed them, in the way Mary ‘gave away’ her perfume.
We also spoke about times when we may have questioned the way other people worship and took time to consider what is what about the actions of others that disturbed or bothered us. We wondered what we could learn from this.
The evening closed with us sharing, as Christian Community, bread and wine before we than prayed about stuff that needed praying about.
Tonight was a great evening. The discussion was sometimes shallow, often deep, and with enough water inbetween to flow or tussle with. There was laughter too. When HT get together there is always laughter!. I hope that stays.
Thanks you for coming … see you next time!
