Today is Good Friday and we had a wonderful service. This was in spite of the overhead projector not working and there being no musicians. Undeterred, we had a fantastic time singing songs, interspersed with readings, reflecting Jesus' death on the cross. I realised once again that Jesus died for me and if that was all that had happened, and Jesus had stayed dead, he would most probably have been forgotten or become like one of the Ancient Greek Philosophers, remembered only by Classists, intellectuals and listeners to Radio 4. Instead He is our savour and Lord and founded a global faith community spreading all over the world in every country. Praise God for Jesus.
We will be meeting again on Sunday to celebrate Jesus' resurrection. If you can, join us. There will be Easter Eggs for the children. See you then!
This Sunday (4th March) was the first Sunday I have taught Sunday Club since April last year. My class have grown up a bit since I last saw them but are just as nice. I taught them about Abraham's calling by God to on his journey to the land of Canaan which he and his descendants had been given by God. It must have taken a great deal of faith for Abraham to leave the familiar town of Ur and go on a journey without knowing the destination. I wonder if I would have been so brave.
Of course, most of us will not be in Abraham's position, but the lesson drawn from this story is that we can and should trust God for everything, even when we don't know the full story or, in Abraham's case, the destination. Trust is the key in this story and one which applies to us all.
I look forward to telling the children the next part of the story.
