Have three spaces in the worship space for people to move to afterwards:
First space: rip out pages from an old Bible, put them on a table with a black marker and the following words:
What are the parts of the Bible you really don’t like?
We all have them – they’re the parts that we’d rather skim over and leave for the rest.
(God already knows what they are)
Take the black marker and cross out some of the sentences in the Bible that you just wish weren’t there.
And as you do so, acknowledge to God that your picture of God is too small…
and pray that God will give you the courage to stretch it.
Second space: is just in front of the cross, with some pipe cleaners, a large wooden box, and the following words:
What is the truth about God that you hold most tightly… the belief about God that you treasure most.
Make an image that represents this belief out of the pipe cleaners.
When you’ve finished, put it into the box at the foot of the cross. Put that image aside for this
