Time to Launch
Dave Lucas here.
Let me try and explain the objectives of this new daily online office.
There are several expressions of online church out there already, some with regard to physical or intellectual accessibility, others that are so specific to a particular disability that they are in danger of simply becoming a ghetto of that individuals disability.
What we are striving to envision is an online community that brings together a cross section of the whole church, not individual disabilities, not even all disabilities but everyone of all abilities.
What we have learned from our presence on Twitter is that so many people feel spiritually isolated, that even when you use such online services as there are, you have no sense of being part of a wider community. People are looking to get something of the feeling of belonging they would hope to receive if they were physically part of an active church community. To create such a community online is our dream.
What we are most definitely NOT trying to do is create an online community for disabled people only. It must become a space used by everyone if disabled people are to feel truly integrated in to something bigger.
In order to achieve this we have written what we hope are two simple yet hopefully inspiring liturgies, morning and night, they will be available here in clear print, audio and Makaton. Your participation will be logged and counted so that you will be able to see how many others have prayed that session alongside you.
Each session will have a short reflection and end with a blessing which may be text, audio or video which will be emailed to you. If you scroll to the bottom of this page you will get an idea of the kind of material we are planning. When we go live everything will be properly captioned of course.
