Today John preached on the faith of Moses, continuing in Hebrews 11. The point that really struck me was that the Lord equips us and prepares us through our circumstances for the work He wants us to do. Actually I have been meditating this all through the week so it was good to have it confirmed in church!
This past week we have had news of both life and death. On Thursday Audrey went Home to be with her Lord. We can only be happy for her and yet our thoughts and prayers are with Bert. We pray he will come to know the Saviour as he reflects on this crossing over.
We rejoice with Joe and Gemma on the birth of their baby son, Joel Azariah. Congratulations to you all.
We have decided to go ahead with our centenary carol service on 21st December at 4 pm. Do please spread the word particularly in the surrounding villages. Leaflets are to be printed and the organ is about to emerge from the dust!
