Father’s Day 2018

 Fathers are great. Who else tells you jokes that make you outwardly groan, but really deep down inside you are bursting with laughter? Who else can push you on the swing as high as you like? Today society celebrates Fathers and all that they mean for us. Fathers are great and I am sure that we can all think of one father who has made an impact in our lives, be it our own father or an “adopted” father. You might have been taught to change a tyre or cook a BBQ by such a person. I know that I am grateful for all of the things that my father has taught me and that he did for me. 

Church Values and Practices

 Over the past little while I have been reflecting on the kinds of values and practices that should be evident in the people of God and which help to develop the church into the kind of community that reflects the truth and goodness of God and His kingdom. In the last ‘Pastor’s Pen’ I posed the question, ‘ If God wants to make a difference in people’s lives in our area, and He wants to use us in that process, what will it look like – would it be any different to what we are doing now? 

God Has A Purpose In Everything

 If we truly believe in a sovereign God – One who directs all of human history – then we can firmly say that nothing happens by accident. God has a purpose in everything. God has me here for a reason; God has you here for a reason; God has us, as a church, here for a reason and purpose. Just as each of us are unique – having different personalities; different gifts and abilities; different life experiences that have shaped us and which make us able to relate to, and minister to, others facing similar situations – this church is unique.
