Reading Andrew Jones this morning. He dropped this little nugget:
It might be better to have a party that is redemptive than having a boring service that has moments of drama/fun.
I am taking a positive spin on things these days, so I ignore the way of reading the quote which could be seen as critical of the church. Now I am free to wonder about the idea of a redemptive party as a narrative for communal gatherings. I like that idea a lot.
In the funny world of synchronicity, another friend and I were having a very similar discussion just last week, I always pay a little more attention to wild ideas when they start popping up in more than one place.
Andrew promises to write more on this idea and I will be watching his blog with great interest.
