Greetings <<First Name>>, welcome to this week's newsletter!

Juxtaposition!

What a great word! I have absolutely no idea what it means, other than it has something to do with things being near each other. Still, it popped into my head and so is as good a way to start as any.

It does make me think of the Sunday just gone though. When we had our first worship service back at The Level since the start of lockdown. The striking thing was that we were there, under the shade of our new gazebos, wearing masks, doing a full worship service and all around us were people in tshirts, skating, playing table tennis, playing in the kids park, looking like any other warm sunny day. The contrast was quite striking. 

Then of course it was also our first hybrid service, both in the physical space and cyber space, with people participating from home. Thankfully, due largely to the efforts of our resident techno nerd Philip, it went well and a new normal for MCC Brighton began.

So, perhaps juxtaposition is the word i was looking for in relation to us and the rest of the level but also regarding our new hybrid service. 

Anyway, it was a great experience, seeing how many people were watching us worship, nodding or moving to the music and openly smiling at us, a great atmosphere that we may have missed before when we had sides on the gazebo. It seemed that being so open we touched many more people with our worship. 

Stepping out in Faith and Love can not only reach more people but i feel it is what we, aasfollowers of Christ, are called to do.

Have a blessed, safe and joy-filled week.

Andrew
