Being the Church

This past Sunday a group of us (most of us actually) from our school decided to do something different for church.  We headed to a beautiful area in Colorado Springs called Red Rock Canyon.  Our order of service went like this:

  • Worship by reading aloud the Psalms of Ascent
  • Prayer for people needing/wanting prayer
  • Message from one of our own: Dan Blanton
  • Prayer for healing
  • Communion
  • Lunch
  • 2.5 Hour Hike

It was a fantastic time of worship and prayer and communion.  It’s the image of communion that I most like–dinner with friends.  And so, we didn’t go to church.  We were the church.

Here are a few pictures from our time together.
