If you ask me “What am I most grateful for this week?” The answer is you!
In response to my message last Sunday, I have been greatly encouraged to receive loving, kind and supportive words from many of the beautiful people in our congregation. Thank you. I have been singing your praises all week.
I’m delighted that our congregation cares for me, and one another. May we keep cultivating this loving and encouraging culture among all in our Parish, and beyond. I hope the wider community will come to know us as a loving community of God’s people.
As we connect with our local community in increasing measure over the Christmas period; through such activities as partnering with Mount Eliza Neighbourhood House and knitting Christmas decorations for town tree, plus hosting a Christmas “Sing and soup” or “Carols and Community lunch” outreach event, I pray we will each have opportunity to demonstrate Christ's love to those around us.
Meantime, I hope you can come along this Sunday at 9:30am as we look at Luke 21:5-19 where Jesus tells his disciples they will face many hard things and many will be against them, but they are to “stand firm” and know they will win life!
I pray we all continue to stand firm in our faith in Jesus Christ and “win life” (abundant life!), in Him.
Much Love in Christ,
