The Singing Priest

I saw this video of Rev. Bruno Maggioni in Italy quite some time ago. Every now and then I watch it and it makes me smile and gives me hope.

"I am a priest in a suburban parish," he told daily newspaper Corriere della Sera. "To communicate with the faithful, I need to use a simple language, one that is close to their daily lives. I discovered that with light-hearted music I can fill their hearts with joy. And so, I became a singer."

Discussion verses Preaching

At our last Church in Progress meeting we talked about 'Preaching Re-Imagined' by Doug Pagitt.

It was a strange experience reading Preaching Re-Imagined.  It was like someone had taken my thoughts, articulated them and then printed them in this book.  For some time now I have wondered what church would be like without a sermon slot.  Preaching Re-Imagined is a book for anyone who has dared to imagine church in an alternative way.  It is especially for those of us how are having a hard time voicing why we need to change and envisaging what transformation could come from doing things differently.
