What a gift it was to have Mending Wings lead our worship on Sunday, January 18th.
With over fifteen youth and adults who drummed, danced in full Native regalia, performed drama and taught us to "Dance our Prayers," our worship was full. Corey Greaves, the founder of Mending Wings, shared his heart with us. Our partners in Conversations Around Race were also invited to join us in worship that Sunday.
Reflecting on our time together, Pastor Matt Robbins-Ghormley said,
"I think it’s important that once in a while, we as a congregation are reminded that the way we usually worship isn’t the only way to express worship to Christ.. .
Pastor Matt continued,
"Having the opportunity to experience other expressions of Christ’s body, in the cup of a culture maybe very different than our own, often can help us to recognize how culture-bound our own worship practices are. We are then stretched to have a wider lens for what worship is and can be. So thanks to Corey Greaves and the young people from Mending Wings for leading us - and for all of you taking the risk to join in the dance!"
