Let us play

I have written previously about (children’s) play as a model for liturgy. “As children we play at what may one day become a reality.” (Celebrating Eucharist Chapter 1). These videos bring in another dimension of “play” – playing music together. In this case a mobile recording studio recorded the same song in many different places with the belief that “music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.” As churches bicker with each other over obscure differences, and fight internally about comparatively minor issues, these videos remind me of some of the things that are really important, and give the challenge and hope that liturgy, “playing together,” might also have the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
