Neil Thorogood’s Charcoal Gospel is an interactive worship resource – a DVD and accompanying booklet – providing users with material for 16 major moments in the Christian liturgical year, starting with Advent.
Produced by the URC, this pack usefully collates everything you need for thoughtful mediation and discussion.
For each of the 16 ‘moments’, the booklet includes a charcoal drawing, a meditation inspired by the artwork followed by a liturgical response. The accompanying DVD brings the art work to life on a larger screen alongside the purposefully chosen words for each day. The DVD is timed perfectly to allow the viewer plenty of time to reflect and respond to each presentation and includes links to pages which can be printed out to allow for continued reflection after viewing.
Charcoal Gospel provides an innovative way to present material for teaching, services, discussions between Christians, other faith groups, and also for your own or shared time in quiet reflection.
Both the images and the words are the work of the Revd Neil Thorogood, a URC minister in the Birstol area and a former Principal of Westminster College, Cambridge.
