An ending to start the future...

Closing worship

Bringing the consultation to a close today, participants gathered together for a worship time. Prepared and led by several participants, the service was rich in symbolism and songs on the theme of water.

Upon entry to the worship space, participants washed each other's hands, a symbol of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet. Later, through marking the sign of the cross on their foreheads, water was used as a reminder of baptism.

Following the Lord’s Supper worshippers were invited to drink a cup of water mixed with juice, which the leader explained symbolized 'the bitterness and the sweetness of what we have heard and shared'.
