Tomorrow morning (going live at 11am) is our Fitzroy Pentecost Sunday On-Line Service and I am excited as a lock down disciple waiting to burst out of isolation and turn the world!
Our title for this Pentecost celebration is Bonfire In A Hurricane. It will ripple through the sermon and prayers and will see the first play of our new song written for Pentecost with this very title. I am like a child waiting for Christmas in my impatience. for you to hear this. Jonny Fitch has done an amazing job and John Trinder adds the tastiest of bonfire guitar solos! The price of watching the service - FREE - is worth every penny just for this song!
In the sermon we will remember that God is not safe, with reference to Frozen, The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe and Jason Isbell's 24 Frames. We will ask what this has to do with us in lock down but particularly the leadership role of those fired by a bonfire in a hurricane as we come out of lock down - that means ALL of us! I will finish by taking up Charlie Mackesy's challenge to rip up the awful face Christianity shows the world. We are NOT Plodding, Predictable Platitudes BUT a Bonfire in a Hurricane!
In the evening (going live at 7pm) we have the last in Gary Burnett's astute and insightful teaching on the life of Paul - Paul in Ten. Again the Holy Spirit will be the theme!
