‘Why were you searching for me?’ he asked. ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?’ (Luke 2:49)
Who is Jesus? Luke is continuing to tell us more about who Jesus is. After Jesus is separated from Mary and Joseph, they find him in the temple, listening to the teachers of the law, and asking them questions. Jesus knew exactly who he was, but did everyone else around him? Do we? Do you?
A Brief Report on the PCC meeting held 17th January 2022.
With thoughts of dark, dismal, cold and wet nights in our future the PCC decided that it did not welcome another PCC meeting that ran into our bed time, and for the first time in my memory (which I have to admit is a bit dodgy) the meeting was set for a 10.30 a.m. start.
I hope that this email is useful, and that you are able to spend a few minutes at noon each day, as we pray together as a church family. Please do keep sending your prayer suggestions to me, so that we can make sure we are praying around the needs, burdens and encouragements of our whole church family.
For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel. (Luke 2:30-32)
