I am always very aware of the grace that covers and goes with us as God’s people, that our loving and caring Father is holding His Church together in an amazing way. Paul, in his letter to the Colossians (1: 15-20) reminds us of who Jesus is, what He came to do and what He has done for us. The key areas that Paul covers, among others, are: that He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God; all things were created by Him and for Him and that in Him all things hold together. I continue to be in awe of the One who has called us and redeemed us by His blood through which we are able to belong and to be called His own. It’s grace. All the way.
He has not disappointed us, nor can He ever disappoint us. The Church belongs to Him, it is His own and He will continue to sustain it. We are witnesses of His love and presence among us. We need to remember this as we continue to serve Him.
I have been encouraged immensely by the impact of the Easter Experience in so many aspects, but in particular the evidence of the hunger of His people to learn more and to continue meeting post this experience in L.I.F.E (home) groups.
This Sunday, 27 May, it is Pentecost and we will have special Pentecost services at both the 8am and 9.30am service. I encourage you to join us.
On Monday, 28 May, we will have a congregation Meeting (a Members’ meeting) which will be a very special meeting in the life of St Mungo’s as it will be an opportunity for us to discuss the pastorate here. I hope that you will make a special effort to attend. We will start promptly at 7pm and there’ll be tea afterwards, which I hope you’ll stay for.
