In the latest episode of the Mid-faith Crisis Podcast we reflect on the Coronation service. Was it weird or wonderful? Amazing anachronistic? Holy or hypocritical? Or was it just like every other church service only with more bling and a woman with a sword?
Answer: all of the above, really.
But maybe it points us to the tension inherent in every church service between what we profess as participants and what we actually do the moment we get out of the door.
Anyway we talk a bit about this, and about the need to find our own rituals and the moments of profundity in the middle of a weird state worship service.
Bonus: what happens when you ask ChatGPT to write a worship song featuring the Chiffchaff?
