I am the web
Our First Sunday Thing is 'all age worship' rather than just 'family service'. We try to provide a proper creche and activities suitable for children. But we also try to provide things for adult study as well. Last time a group of about ten studied the different places in John's Gospel where Jesus says 'I am the bread of life' or 'I am the vine' or something similar. They looked at the depth of meaning behind these, and also wondered what images John might have used if he was writing today. Their suggestions included: I am the text; I am the sat nav; I am the energy; I am the window; I am the conscience; I am the server; I am the facilitator; I am the net; I am the provider; I am th ISP; I am the search engine; I am the navigator.
