This Sunday is going to be tough, and I’m not just saying that. Suffering isn’t just a “topic”, it’s an all-too-real part of our experience of life. So talking about suffering, like we’re going to be doing this Sunday, is never easy because it’s very real and very personal. But I reckon that just means we need to be listening to God’s word all the more. Suffering raises so many questions for us. Where better to look than God’s word for the answers, or better still, the perspective that we need.
As part of Sunday’s service we’ll be hearing a great new song done as an item – “it is not death to die”. You can look here for a sneak preview (but a warning: the combination of words and images is pretty confronting).
And don’t forget that we’ll be participating in Clean-up Australia Day straight after morning tea this Sunday. Invite your friends to join us at 11:00am for a bite to eat before heading out around East Lismore. Remember, the motivation is to care for our patch as God intended AND also to spend some time together with our friends who need to know Jesus.
See you Sunday!
