Join us on Sunday

Here’s a quick reminder, you don’t need a Facebook account to join us. You can connect direct by clicking on LIVE or else you can link to it through our website. Here’s a link to join in:
Sharing our faith….Outreach survey update
Tuesday I sent out a survey on your experiences sharing your faith. Thanks for those who’ve filled in in already. I’ve been really interested to see how you’ve responded. A number of you have shared your thoughts with me on the composition of the survey and in particular the question of the frequency of sharing. I wanted you to know that I updated that question to reflect some of the input. Thanks for reading it carefully!
Have you done it yet? Are you now intrigued by what I just shared? There’s still time to do it!
I’ll report back on our findings in the next couple of weeks.
Thought for the day: Closing thoughts on fruit
The last couple of weeks we’ve been looking at the fruit of the Spirit, how to get it and what it looks like. Let’s look at the text, in full, one last time. Paul writes in Galatians 5: “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”
We often will read (or maybe even memorize) the components of the fruit but we don’t often look at the impact of it which we see in the verses that follow. I could write probably a bunch of blogs on this but instead I’m going to encourage you to read it reflectively and talk to God about how this applies to your life. May we all seek to live in this manner and let our lights shine!
In His grip,
