Sunday 12th December 2021

For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given,

and the government will be on his shoulders. Isaiah 9:6

Have you ever wondered what the government on shoulders phrase means? I used to imagine a miniature group of people on the shoulders of God, like a group of MPs, governing (not sure I should admit to that...). But this phrase is very significant. It is about Jesus bearing the burden of responsibility to govern, to be a kingly leader rather than a political leader.

And he will be called

Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:7

And this is how our King leads, reigns and governs. Isn't it fantastic?


Today we have two services. Firstly, there is the 9am Families Service which is a 45 minute, short service aimed at...families. This is done around tables. Then at 10.30 we have our third-Sunday-in-Advent service with Lance preaching. There will not be any youth / children's provision for the 10.30 service.

Mask wearing in church is now mandatory so please come prepared. We would also encourage you to continue to wear your masks while singing to keep droplet spread to a minimum (which is the purpose of masks anyway). Thank you.

Next week we have our 2 Christmas services (see yesterday's email) and, bearing in mind the current covid situation, please do use it as an opportunity to invite a work friend, neighbour or family member.


God bless you all Richly,

Much Love,


Dave
