We are the weavers
We are the woven ones
We are the dreamers
We are the dream
- From the song Spiralling into the Circle
This weekend I attended a Spirituality Development Con that our district put on for youth and adults. It was a training on leading circle worship, the style of worship we use at youth and young adult cons. Circle worship is a dynamic alternative to traditional worship. Instead of sitting in pews looking up at the worship leader, we are all equals and participants in our circle, were sharing is prioritized over sermonizing. This weekend we experimented with different worships, one of the most creative being “Here Comes the Sun” while snow melted in our hands, reflecting on the long winter.
We have some upcoming events with circle worships. Please see if you can attend:
Cabin Con: a weekend in a cabin in Hocking Hills, southeast Ohio. Come for hiking, community, and worship. March 21-23. http://ohiomeadville.org/omdevents/234-cabincon2014
