35th Greenbelt Communion Service

Greenbelt Talks

We ‘throw those curtains wide’ when the sun shines; we mope when it doesn’t. Pouring energy and life our lives, God shines on us, like the great sun itself. Processing fromt he north, south, east and west, we gather together to celebrate the source of all light, heat and life: ‘the sun of righteousness, rising with healing in its wings.’ And as we gather music from the east – where the sun first touches the earth each day – awakens our senses. Looking to the Rising Sun, we turn our eyes eastward. We invite you all to wear bright colours so that – dressed in oranges, reds and yellows – we create a living sea of light.
