The Inside Column 31/1

Good morning and a warm welcome to all. If you are visiting with us today, we would love to get to know you. Please feel free to stay for a hot drink after the service.

We are the body of Christ and each one of us is a part of it. Last week I asked these questions; What role do you play and what role could you play in the Body of Christ? We all have a part to play and as we move into the New Year it is good to ask ourselves and consider… Where do we fit? What can we do? What skills do we have? How is God going to use us this year?

Today we are going to be starting to look at why we are the body of Christ, what God wants us to do.

Convergence Church Camp is now only a couple of weeks away. I would like to encourage everyone to make the time to come to camp even if it for just one day. At church we get about 20-30 minutes to talk and have a cup of tea. At camp you get a lot more time to talk with people, and the opportunity to really get to know people on a whole new level. There will be some times of teaching and times of worship and of course time to spend on the beach. On Saturday night I will be interviewing the Bishop on what he sees as his vision for the church and what the church might look like in the future. There will be a children’s programme and a programme for the teens. I would love as many people from St Barnabas to come yo camp for what promises to be a great weekend.

Have you read Psalms lately? Every now and again I read Psalms and I find they are very moving. Here is part of Psalm 1 – one of my favourite psalms… 1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3  That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither –  whatever they do prospers. If you have not read the Psalms recently, why not read through them again over the next couple of weeks?

Yours in Christ

 

Philip
