Drawing on the story of David and Saul in the cave at Ein Gedi, Ian taught on principles of forgiving others. Southwell School's Choiresters from Hamilton were staying at Peter Snell Youth Village and attended the service singing two songs during communion.
Today, Captain Peter Lloyd preached from Hebrews 11:1-9. This passage serves as a foundational text that asserts the divine origin, authority, and redemptive power of the Christian faith. Peter quoted from C.S Lewis - 'Christianity, if true, of infinite importance, and if false, is of No importance'. Christianity is not merely a human philosophy but a revelation of the eternal and all-encompassing truths of God, offering infinite significance to the lives of believers.
In our readings we find the people of God rejecting God's ways and indeed His very self. We are among those called into the Kingdom, let us not treat lightly so great a salvation.
Our Intergenerational service is based on the theme of God as the creator and incorporated a blessings of animals. This is the first of a new connection with Messy Church where we introduced the same theme.
The three readings today have a common theme - grumbling. We find the Israelites grumbling against Moses and God in the wilderness. In the gospel reading, the religious leaders seek to trap Jesus by their questions. Meanwhile Paul in his letter to the Philippians both warns against grumbling and shows us the attitude we should have (unity in humility) as well as the means by which we can do that.
