Today’s service included readings from Luke’s Gospel (Luke 9: 57-62 & Luke 15: 25-33) and considered what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Jesus cautioned potential followers that this would be a full-time commitment for life and that we should carefully consider the implications of what this means. During the offering Rosemary played Stuart Townend’s “The Lord’s my Shepherd” which has the refrain “And I will trust in You alone”, the original of which can be heard HERE.
The children had discovered Bible words beginning with ‘L’ and ‘M’ and included:
Lazarus; Luke; Leviticus; lam; Lamentation; life; love; LORD (and Lucifer) then Martha; Mary; manna: Matthew; Mark; Moses; Malachi, Micah and MESSIAH.
There will be no alphabet challenge over the next two weeks during the Easter services of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and then Easter Sunday but on the 28th April we will be looking at ‘O’ and ‘P’.
If you can, do bring in some greenery to wave during the Palm Sunday service (but please take it home again) and then on Easter Sunday, why not bring in a decorated hard-boiled egg and a daffodil?
Finally, don’t forget the fund-raiser coffee morning on Saturday 13th April at 11:00. If you are able to bring in some additional baking, Sarah (Park) would be very grateful.
