Note to self: If you invite people to worship with you, expect them to turn up! ALWAYS be optimistic. Think of a number and then double it.
The family service in the school this morning was chaotic, brilliant and completely overwhelming. The school hall looked brilliant with all the children’s work on display. But I was not prepared for the loud organised chaos and it was hard to create a worshipful atmosphere with loads of excited children. I should have thought more carefully how to do prayers and how to keep everyones attention when we don’t have enough space to do things cafe style.
They came and they had fun with God. One very smiley assistant priest this morning.
God was in the chaos. Good job he can make up for my amateurish attempts at worship.
I wasn’t called by God to be perfect!
