it’s changed our death forever

We have gathered together because we’re people who have heard a rumor that there’s life to be found on the other side of death. We’re here because just the rumour is enough to bring a breath of hope and just the hope is enough to bring a moment of life.

We’re here because even though it is only a rumour, a breath, a moment, it’s changed our death forever.

Welcome to worship.

_________________________________ You’d never end the story by turning us away so why do we live as if we could do something that will stop you loving us?

You’d never end the story giving up waiting for us so why do we live in fear of wearing out your patience?

You’d never end the story with a litany of our sins so why do we live as though you see us only with eyes of judgement? You’d never end the story giving us one last warning so why do we live in fear that your goodwill will run out?

You’d never end the story not recognising us so why do we live thinking you don’t know the shape of our souls?

You’d never end the story with outpourings of anger so why do we live in fear of incurring your wrath?

You’d never end the story by taking us back as servants so why do we live as though there are limits on your grace?

You’d never end the story slamming a door in our face so why do we live in fear of your rejection? You’d never end the story with anything but love so why do we live as though our story might end with anything but love?
