This morning we were led in worship by Miss Sophie Carnaby. We listened to readings from Matthew 3 and Ruth chapters 1 and 3.
We prayed for many situations around the world, but particularly for those in Thailand, the Ukraine and those involved in our Messy Church this afternoon.
Sophie spoke about Ruth and her story. The book of 3 love stories, including the love between God and his people. Boaz redeemed the land and allowed Ruth to become a member of God’s family, just as Jesus became our kin and allows us as sinful people to become people of God. The foot or yhe cross is our threshing floor where the wheat is separated from the chaff. Like Ruth we gain a new family when we are redeemed. Everyone is welcome at the foot of the cross.
