Last night at the Rock Mass we were looking at the interaction between Jesus and the Woman at the Well. I know someone who works for Yorkshire Water so we had an installation of a stand pipe in the centre of church. This linked in with the use of the well known “to be known is to be loved” monologue.
For the confession we used Holy Water by Inglorious. As the God’s forgiveness was pronounced, the priest sprinkled the congregation with the holy water from underneath the standpipe. After exploring what it means for God to welcome in the outsider, the stranger and the alien, we wrote our prayers on the giant blue paper cross with chalk whilst Metanoia played Where the Street’s Have No Name.
