Shawn, it works for me. It's an mp3. I'll try emailing you the mp3. The demo is pretty rough and doesn't quite get the Oils vibe that I'm after.

Great to hear from you Graeme. Hope you're both keeping well. Peace.

Chris, thanks for the comment and you're not the first person to say that! (see previous comment) Firstly the brief narrative mentions salvation history in Creation, Cross and the Spirit's coming. But secondly, the people are invited to make their own prayer of thanksgiving together. It's the work of the people. Of course, that part could be structured more - let us give thanks for God's goodness in Creation, let us give thanks for the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, etc. Having said that, I figure that people take liturgy and change it to make it their own, so that's why I haven't tried to fix it.

Claire, that is lovely to hear. We moved back to Melbourne a year ago, and certainly understand the current challenges. Peace to your team.

Thanks Cynthia. You're welcome to use anything. I'll email you some Prodigal Son stations that I've done. I'm sure I stole some ideas from Cheryl Lawrie. When I've done this before I've had people sitting at tables with bowls for tasting in the centre of the table. I'm thinking this time of simply having bowls that are passed along the rows and people take some seeds or rock salt. I'm thiniknig of using communion glasses for the third tasting. That then made me wonder if I would change the third tasting for something like sparkling apple juice. I'll add a photo of the Son figure above - it's actually the bottom of a broken candle holder but it sort of looks like a person.

Your words are most gracious and your contribution was fabulous. Thanks again.

thanks. I look forward to checking out some of those. I had forgotten about Gurrumul and the Alabama Shakes. And the Ryan Adams album. i was underwhelmed somewhat by Sufjan. I liked Wilco...

Thanks Nicole. I know Godly Play. That's a helpful idea. We would need to change the setting, for a few reasons. Let me think about it.

that's a fair comment Ann. As you can guess, the Great Prayer of Thanksgiving was meant to be said by the people. It would have been possible to give them some cues in that time. eg. let us give thanks for God's work in Creation.... let us give thanks for the gift of Jesus Christ, God-with-us, etc.

thanks steve. yes you're aprtly right about the title, although the authors (and I) proceed to say that there are problems with CE. maybe I should call it Part 1...
Final verse became... Be the sacrifice that breaks us Be the shelter in the flood Be the promise that remakes us Be the parent who is good now to write a tune!

thanks, really helpful comments. Paul, surely you're not tied into such a tight kind of rhyming? I gave that up years ago. too few things rhyme with "ood"...

David, thanks for asking! I dont know where the pianist got the song from, but the 'permission' always says that people are free to use it for worship. The song has three authors and no publisher and you are more than welcome to us it for non-commercial purposes. The NCYC songbook explains that. At least I thought it did. Please sing it, enjoy it, share it. And by the way, yes, I'm the contact person.

Well that's great. I wish we had seen, heard about or stumbled across it all! I hope you heard my apology. I was reflecting on my actual experience. Interesting to experience the campus/event from a parent/visitor perspective.

steve, did the room have staff as well? my comment was actually about staffing and profile.

I will amend my post accordingly. Apologies.

Well that's wonderful to hear! Clearly I jumped to a conclusion based on the lack of a person at the Humanities table. How did people find it? Were there many visitors?
