Interactive Worship is a time to explore a theme through song, listening, reflecting and doing. This week's theme is appropriate to Interactive Worship, 'Speaking and Doing' with different people contributing and compiled by Irene Bostock and the team.
Call to Worship comes from the Northumbria Community.
Stf 121 Autumn days hen the grass is jewelled
Introduction to the theme
Mark Chapter 1 vs 21-34
Stf 248 'I heard the voice of Jesus say'
2. Questions and ponderings:
a) Our Bible Reading (Mark 1 v21-34) shows Jesus talking (teaching) in the Synagogue and doing (healing). Which would you say is more important? Why?
b) If you have a Bible handy find the book of James in the New Testament and look at chap. 2 v. 14-18 and v. 26. What does James think is more important, faith (speaking) or actions (deeds)? Do you agree with James?
c) Its a Sunday morning and you are planning going to church. A friend rings in desperate need of someone to talk to. Would you go straight to see him/her or carry on and attend church? Why
d) Is there a specific part of the Bible or verse of a hymn that you find particularly helpful? What is this and why?
