worship treat

I was quite pleased with this.

It took about 20 minutes to make;
Two boxes;
Seal a red light in the top box.
Cut a cross in the top of the bottom box.
And so the red light shines through the cross and falls on the communion elements.
As you reach in for communion, the light of the cross falls on you.

The idea was sparked by thinking about Moses and the burning bush. The fascinating thing is that the bush is not burnt. So the text carries that sense of God + nature rather than God denying nature.

God does not burn us up, but in love and warmth reveals who we really are. So as you reach for communion, let the love and warmth of God reveal who you really are.

  2. Perhaps, as an installation, it should be titled “Red Light Communion” [winking].

  3. cheers Paul, thanks for helping the tone of this blog 🙂 and keeping p**n spammers at bay:)

    I also wondered about calling it “alt.host”, as it reminded me of the Catholic place where they store the host. So there is nothing new under the sun!

  6. that a really lovely idea, Steve. It reminds me of a light installation I saw earlier in the year.
    I’d love to know how it went for folks.
