Rock Eucharist

Some of my friends and the readers of my blog will remember this well.  Partly because you were there and in some cases because you were in the band!

A few years ago we decided to have a thought experiment – what would the Eucharist look like if it was incarnated into a sphere that people easily recognise – a rock concert.  If memory serves I spent a lot of time playing guitar in Drop D tuning for such worship songs as “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence. 

Recently there have been Blues Brothers moments between myself and Duttyo about “putting the band back together” and going on the road doing youth services.

At Greenbelt two years ago I was introduced to Rachel and Paul Ganney by my wife.  I am sketchy on the details (and no doubt I will be corrected) but I think they met when Ruth was a teenager and playing rock at church services.  That evening Rachel and Paul and some other guys went on to do a Rock Eucharist.  A good time was had by all!

It turns out that Rachel has just commented here on my blog and that they are living the dream.  Check out their Rock Eucharist Roadshow at http://www.rockeucharist.co.uk/

As an addendum – Duttyo, I think Hull is far enough away for us to live the dream here in Leeds =D

    Ruth and I have formulated a plan. We must discuss it next time we see each other.

    Speaking of which, it has been a while.
