And now for the main event.
You know how for the past three years or so I've been chirping incessantly about how I'm going to start up an intercongregational worship event among the Church of Darwin? And you know how for those same three years I've not provided a shred of evidence that I'll ever follow through on that chirping?
Well the shredless days are over baby. Last weekend we finally kicked off the first ever One Body worship service. It was the culmination of months and months of talking and about a week and a hlaf of frantically running around making things happen.
Look, I'll be honest; we ended up with just a three piece band, playing just seven songs, and only ten people came. But the point is we made a start, and got people there from three different congregations hanging out and getting to know each other. Plenty of locals have offered to help run the next one, which hopefully means there's some chance of it being organised properly.
Things we learned from One Body:
1) Twenty minutes before the service is not the right time to see if the data projector works.
2) It is possible to fit an enitre drum kit in my Ford Focus hatchback.
3) Nobody responds to Facebook invitations anymore.
4) Bass players are over-rated.
Make of that what you will.
