Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:12)
What would life be like if we were all the same? God made us all to be different, with different gifts and abilities, and different strengths and weaknesses. We work together as part of a bigger whole just like, as St Paul says, a body. Our need for each other shows God’s goodness at work, and helps us to grow as Christians.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service of Holy Communion in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we look together at how our diversity demonstrates the gospel and helps us to grow.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will be taking place simultaneously online and in-person at St Andrew. Streaming for the 10:30am service will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
