We welcomed Mr Roy Hollands this morning, who spoke on Genesis 12 v 1-9 and Matthew 9 v 9-13 & 18-26. We shared stories of unexpected kindness. We were reminded of God’s call to us all, no matter who we are. Abram left his ancestral home to follow God. Jesus ate with and called tax collectors and sinners to follow him and showed them God’s kindness.
Jesus is our influencer who encourages us in the way we live our lives. John 10 reminds us that Jesus wants to welcome us and he will lie down and be the gate into the shepfold. Psalm 23 also reminds us that God is with us too, to guide us and keep us safe. The Good shepherd does the gritty job trying to be our influencer.
Many thanks to Revd Helen Hollands for leading our worship this morning.
Our service next Sunday is at 10:30 and will be led by Revd Paul Dean and will include Holy Communion.
Saturday 8th April 2.30-4pm at John Wesley School.
