December 6th – This is the Good News

There is such a temptation at this time of year to dress up the message in the glitz and the glamour, the tinsel and the trappings that it gets dumbed-down, lost even. We are all called to go out and share the Good News as the angels did to the Shepherds – ‘This very day in David’s town your Saviour was born – Christ the Lord!’ Luke 2.11 – to tell the world that Jesus is born. Who are you going to tell? Shared by Stephen Manners

November 29th – Watch then

35 Watch, then, because you do not know when the master of the house is coming – it might be in the evening or at midnight or before dawn or at sunrise. 36 If he comes suddenly, he must not find you asleep. 37 What I say to you, then, I say to all: Watch!” Mark 13.35-37

November 22nd service – I was hungry but you would not feed me

Jesus tells a story of how the Son of Man will separate his people into two groups: one group is welcomed into his kingdom, the other turned away. And the deciding factor – what puts us in one group rather than the other – is how we treat other people. Those welcomed into the kingdom of heaven are those who cared for the hungry, the poor, the sick and the stranger. Those who didn’t do these things are not welcomed in. Shared by Stephen Manners.
