  • Resource
    for life

    We gather to give thanks for the good things we enjoy. But even as we do, we cannot help but remember those who we cannot imagine having much to give thanks for. It seems naïve, at best, for Jesus to say, “Do not worry about your life…For life is more than food.” (Luke 12.22f) But, we know that Jesus had a passionate priority for the poor, so what does he mean? How can this make a difference to the life of the poorest, and indeed to our lives? We could all do with a lot less worry in our lives, alongside a lot more people having cause to give thanks. God asks us, “What is in your hand?”

  • Invitation
    for Life

    What kind of person turns down an invitation to a banquet in the hours before the wedding? And you would have to be a special kind of crazy to do that when the event is for the king’s son, even today in the UK. What kind of opportunities for life and wellbeing would such an invitation bring? When Jesus talks about kings and weddings, we can be sure he is talking about the Kingdom of God – not one day when you die, but in the here and now. God asks, “What is in your hand?”

  • Giving Life

    These days, if we’re shopping, we’re likely to have a plastic card in our hand, rather than cash – it’s safer just now. When Jesus’ enemies tried to trick him about paying taxes to the Romans, he asked to see the actual coin. Someone held it out in their hand. Wealth, according to the Bible, is a spiritual issue. Handled generously money can give life. God asks, “What is in your hand?”

  • Inheritance
    for Life

    Today we celebrate the dedication of our church building. We reflect on the inheritance that we have received, both in the building and in the church we are part of. It’s a well-worn preacher’s point that the church is not the building but the people; nevertheless the building that is the house of the church is a place of significance in the life of the church and the community. Today, we will consider the inheritance of both church and building and we will present the work that the PCC has been doing to restore the house of the church for the work God is calling his church to do in this time and in this place. God asks, “What is in your hand?”
