Here is the liturgy that was written by Sarah for the Ikon event at Greenbelt.
THE OLD OLD STORY
Stories make us; they breathe life into our bones, moulding and stretching us with their lingering footnotes and bright new chapters
May we be truth-tellers and myth-spellers and story-tellers
And telling old, old stories, may we all live well ever after…
Stories take us, narratives which are centuries old shape our daily lives, tales of cities and towers and mega-powers
May we rethink our stories, faith and life with care, remembering that there is always more than one side to every story.
There is history & there is her story
MAKING THE PAST INTO HISTORY
Stories forsake us; sometimes memories can become a cover story
May we unfurl our grip on our dead end stories which repeat like a record trapped in a groove.
Making the past into history is a profound and delicate art
MAKING THE WORD FLESH
Stories became flesh. God is the plot and we are the writers; God is the writer and we are the plot.
May we embrace our INCARNATION in capital letters. For our chief end, perhaps, is to storify God and enjoy each other forever.
God is a story that loves to be told. Once upon a time…
