It’s great to be back with you all. I enjoyed my time away but I always enjoy coming back home and coming back to join with you in worship. We had a really good time with our friends in Odisha.
Last Sunday Ian used a quote from C.S. Lewis “The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .
Jesus, although both human and divine, took time out to be alone with God and communicate with his Father God, both to talk and listen.
Yesterday was the first Sunday with our new name on the building and with the new website. It’s looking good but more than that it is giving expression to something that is central and foundational to all we do.
There is a new song that declares I am: "No longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God". And later adds: "You split the sea so I could walk right through it, My fears are drowned by perfect love" We need to be free, then we can walk into our destiny!
