As a general rule we do not believe that we should skirt the parts of the Bible that might at first appear less straight forward to us than others. All scripture is equally inspired, so we seek to find what God would say to us through the whole Bible, not just our favourite bits. Continue reading “Looking at ‘difficult’ parts of the Bible”

The Jubliee is coming up, and we will be involved in a few things in June.
To warm up to it we published this poster with a quotation from HRH from the last Christmas speech in which she said ‘God sent into the World an unique person – neither a philospoher nor a general, important though they are, but a Saviour, with the power to forgive.’ Many Christians felt moved, and thankful that the speech was so warm in commending Jesus Christ.
The last 60 years have certainly been among the most peaceful on record for this realm, and this is a cause for thanksgiving, but people are looking forward to the next 60 with much greater uncertainty. We want to play our part in enriching life here by proclaiming the good news of Jesus, and calling people together as a community of God’s people. Jesus’ peace is the only certain peace.
On the Jubilee weekend we hope to be taking part in the celebrations at the Peace Memorial Hall, here in North Bradley on June 2nd, and inviting everyone to join us on the Sunday for The Big Lunch – in short, everyone bring a picnic to eat after the service. Be good to see as many as can getting together, we have a new flag pole that I guess we’ll unveil on the occassion, and have some family time.
