It's been going round my head that we ought to record our story with more than just words. The life of a congregation in the Church of Scotland tends to be recorded by the annual statistical return. I don't know which Calvinist suggested such a creative way of celebrating a story but I'm know there are a whole lot of others ways.
So this year, while the freshness can still be smelled, I wonder if there is anyone out there who would like to take this year and record the life of the congregation in a more creative way: poetry, art, photography, word-clouds, songs, tweets, labyrinths... the sky's the limit.
As many people as would like can apply: you'll all get a job but it is an unpaid position. Treat it as a vocation, a calling, a thing to do when there are no other things to do. It's a way of doing theology that is a little more creative than other ways of doing theology.
So, seriously, if there is anyone near or far, local or global, who might fancy being one of a few folk who might find a way of recording the congregation's story for a year then please, please get in touch. It could be a school or college project, help create a portfolio, a retirement activity; but essentially finding an imaginative way to record and celebrate what happens, the feelings, the emotions, the timeline of a congregation.
