The need to get physical with God is rarely as expansive and liberating as could be. Talking church meetings. Traditional dominates. Old and modern. Nowhere in the Bible are we told not to develop new rituals but suspicions run high this is somehow dodgy.
This website is one/for me. Type and graphics with essential elements: a form of worship/prayer, prophecy/proclamation.
Cleansing rights -or- Baptisms? Take y'pick or both, referred to in these foundations of learning. Next comes laying on hands.
High on the priorities. Likely early church was big on material and/or physical acts of engagement. Emerging out from the Temple and Law it must have seemed the natural progression.
No words here for hypothetical Church meets. This is for the solitary one or home-based 'church' if y'lucky to be a two or three gathered.
As I 'oil pull' and get this first bit out, there's a rev. Am I making this 20 min. action speak. Combine with intent and call ceremony or what-have-you?
Swishing Coconut oil in m'gob, is this a means to add something? To make 'holy' in the set-apart and consecrate sense. Spit out and salt up -- and 'say' what?
Have communion ready for later -- but what else? Regular, intentional and repetitive. Or could be spontaneous. Might be irregular or a one-off.
Why/what/for? Jolly things up? Not particularly compelling, depending on your tastes. The reason is action speaks. The Bible is full of examples. Means for two-way communication and war out into the unseen, the word alive.
Best get leading to do physical prayer/worship... a prophetic act. Somehow catch the wind of The Spirit and do something.
Taken communion, not done so well. Rushed and ragged. Does this matter? More the all surrounding time.
Made effort before, towards 'acts', or 'rites' -- as the quote goes. Didn't kick-off and routine up. But this what's what. The laying on of hands. Whole body engagement with things. Embody articulation 'n all that.
