God Breaks In

Encounter was truly awesome.  Four like minded souls, nothing short of angels, just walked through the door and we were simply blown away by the movement of the Holy Spirit Sunday evening.  I couldn’t get the experience out of my mind yesterday.  I continue to think about it and proclaim the wonder of the love and grace that brought it to our door.  Thank you God.  Thank you Bath and Yorkshire.  Thank you Mark.   Thank you Gill and Hazel.  Blessings to you all.


Becoming an Invitational Church

Michael Harvey’s talk today was fascinating and brought home many points that can really help us at St. Andrew’s.  For me what I see as most important is that we are all working for the same Lord, the same purpose with the same goals.  We all aren’t called to do the same things and we all aren’t good at the same things so God gives us different gifts and these must be recognised so that we can be effective.  If we can complement one another, we’ll be able to encourage, in the right way, everyone we meet, to join us at St. Andrew’s and come to faith.  Father God, open up our hearts so that we can really work together in love for your kingdom here in Coniston and the world where you move us each and every day.  Amen.
