If you are in the Eastern Baptist Association (BUGB) or have links with Church from Scratch or are a Gatherer then it is possible that you might like to participate in a new venture this Holy Week. 'Jesus Live Time' is an interesting experiment whereby you can sign up to receive the Holy Week/Easter story in 'real time' in 30 text messages (is that meant to match the 30 pieces of silver?) absolutley free because the cost is being met by the participating churches. If it goes well, then next year their hope is to do something linking with GRF (a Glasgow-based Christian radio company) - which is why we know about it. So, if you are a Gatherer and interested, I can tell you how to connect ('spaces' are limited hence I'm not giving 'open house' at this stage)... but please only check your texts if it is safe and legal so to do.
Jesus Live Time is being led by such great folk as Juliet Kilpin and Peter Dominey so I'm sure it'll be fantastic.
When 'Sing Christmas' began, Dibley was one of the first churches involved; five years on it is a very big East Midlands outreach event. It'd be great if this new initiaitve could make Easter loom much larger in people's lives and inspire more interest in what Christianity is all about.
