Making the love of Jesus a reality in the community 7 days a week.

Weekly Newsletter

This week I was at the URC research network with my Northern College hat on. It was an interesting time where we heard all sorts of research that people are doing. One of the things that I heard that resonated with me is that we need to come up with new ideas and new ways of seeing God that will help us navigate the present and the future. I couldn’t agree more- learning new ways of speaking about God is vital if we are to be relevant. 

We also had three exciting achievements this week. The field toilet is ready to go! It has taken almost 12 months to move from fundraising to reality. And it seems also like we’ve managed to crack the zoom sound. It’s been a frustrating recent time trying to work out how to fix the problem.  And finance have produced examined accounts in record time. Thanks to all who have made all this happen. 

This all reminds me that we need both practical actions and ideas to flourish. It is good to see that we have both are happening!  

Just a note about the sermon, the Psalm is one of the “grumpy ones” of complaint. As such the sermon is somewhat more downbeat than usual- rest assured this coming week is based on a sermon of comfort which will be more of a big hug. One other thing, these are my notes and as such is full of Dowdisms  and need to be read as such.  

Hope to see you over the weekend. Let’s hope the forecast is wrong! While my kale is loving what could be described as dismal weather, I despair of any ripe tomatoes this year!
