Dissolving Forgiveness

Thursday 24 March

‘For some silence is refreshing, for others it is awkward and challenging.’ So began the introduction for a silent Eucharist. 

Each part of the service was hailed by a gong strike and ended with a silent action.

The confession was given time and space, the participants were asked to write (or leave blank) their confession on a piece of paper and place it in a bowl of water. The paper was a type that dissolved in water, so when at the bowl was stirred the confessions also dissappeared.

The significance for Maundy Thursday?
