Intentionally doing church, intentionally being Christian

Thinking about how we do and be church, how we be Christians. One main issue of this is the intentionality of what we do, the practice of doing things and intending to do then. Setting out to do things with a purpose and an intention to do, and knowing why it is been done.

I would say this is as true in personal life as it is in the communal life of the church and of individual congregations.

Beingness

This is based in part upon Genesis 18 and Luke 1 and a few other bits in the mix.

 

Beingness

Laughter as an aside
to shade what’s going on.
In shadows cast by images
held up by others.
Moulds that are confining
and constraining.
That simply try to conform
with others expectations.
 
For freedom a yearning
to share in joyful song.
Of a future life
there’s much discerning.
Looking through the lens
at the division by others.
All subsumed beneath a
quiet and calm exterior.
