Grace | The sin of holiness | 09-1998

Grace archive page for this service

Mike Riddell was guest speaker and had given us the title, so we ran with the concept. At what point does our pursuit of [what we think is] 'holiness' become a sin - because it tramples other values such as love and compassion?

We made an altar of traditionally 'unholy' things - gambling (playing cards), alcohol (beer cans) and sex (a 'lad mag')!

Getting our hands dirty planting hyacinth bulbs.

Small groups have an A3 sheet with 'holy' & 'unholy' figures on - write on it what each person would do/be/think/wear etc. Pin results up on two large versions of figures at front.

Mike Riddell's talk, with question and answer session.
