Welcome to the First Session of Christianity Re-Loaded
“We are all made of stars” Moby 2002
“You Have Created us and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you” St Augustine of Hippo 430 AD
“The Heavens Declare the Glory of God and the firmament shows his handiwork” Psalm 19
In this session we will think and pray together about the Gift of God in Creation, at the end of this session you’ll
- Begin to see the Gift of Creation in the everyday world around you
- Begin to see the Gift of Creation as a gift to the whole universe and to yourself personally
- Begin to see the Gift of Creation showing the abundant love of God to all things and to yourself personally
This session is about The Father of the Universe who is your father too.
Prayer, meditation and spirituality may seem a bit alien, but like any new experience, with practise and persistence it becomes easier. The most important thing to remember is to relax – this is not an exercise in getting it right. This is an exercise in beginning or enhancing your relationship with God. We are created to be truly ourselves, because God like any good father loves us for who we are.
Each session has four parts. Don’t try and do them all together, try and space them out. Watch the video first and think of some questions, you can do the meditation or visualisation in either order. It is a good idea to try and do one bible reading each day. Each part has its own page so click on the icon to be taken to each page.
As you watch, jot down your own questions and then ask them in the comments
You may not be used to meditating, but the meditation is super easy to do. Just listen, close your eyes and imagine.
The visualisation asks you to use your imagination and everyday experience to see God in the world and people around you
There are seven short passages from The Bible to read and pray through each session. Each passage has notes to help you.
There are interesting articles and videos about the music used and some questions that may come up.
