Annoyingly I missed mos tof this because I forgot to set the video and only got back from our Youth Council meeting at 9.45
Anybody tape it so I can watch the whole thing? Anyone got any deeper ideas about the show as a whole?
However I was in time to see three girls talking about the service they went to in the US and it gave me some hope for our relatively plain, down to earth Anglican services. They said that a church in England was ok cos it was "like all on the sheet and stuff" but the US service was "too much. It's like jumping in the deep end when you don't really know how to swim"
They felt uncomfortable with the hands in the air arm waving and felt like giggling so left before they upset people. A challenge to us then...
How do we invite young people who have never been to church to our services?
How do we help them not to be embarrassed in such circumstances?
