Sermons from October 2019
Psalm 119 is a masterpiece of Hebrew literature. The section we look at today, verses 129-136, underlines the importance of the Word of God which touches every aspect of our lives. Our calling is to help spread that Word to the very ends of the Earth.
We live in an age of uncertainty with ongoing Brexit negotiations and the climate crisis. Yet we are called not to despair but to be beacons of hope in a difficult world.
Jacob wrestles with God as he waits to cross the Jabbok River. Sometimes God plants a vision in our hearts and we have to wrestle with God and with our own doubts when we consider how to respond.
Today marks the Harvest Festival and, while giving thanks for the changing of the seasons and God’s provision for our needs, it is also a time for looking outwards at the needs of the world around us. Today we focused on our CMS partners, Fiona and Joel Kelling in Jordan.
