Everyone arriving at church was presented with some squares of tissue, and then we all stuck them on a rainbow. Bob reminded us that the rainbow is the sign of God’s faithfulness, that the rainbow only comes when there is rain, and that as we had each played a part in making the rainbow, so we each had a part to play in ‘being the rainbow’ for others. And we learned about the work in Nepal too.
And the tins for the FoodBank were loaded into the trolleys and wheeled to the front. Oh, and we watched an amazing clip from the old children’s TV programme Rainbow, all about Noah’s Ark.
And yes we still sung We Plough The Fields, and Come Ye Thankful People, Come. There are some harvest traditions I’m reluctant to abandon – even if there are new songs, video clips, sticky tissue paper and shopping trolleys involved in our worship too!
