Personally, sadly, I reckon I tend more towards the couldn’t be bothered end of the spectrum. My own birthday is something I find it hard to really get very excited about – another year older, maybe wiser, definitely fatter! BUT EVEN I GET EXCITED WHEN I KNOW CELEBRATION SUNDAY IS COMING UP.
The birthday of my church is something I really want to celebrate – to praise God for the way that he has been at work among us – shaping us, moulding us, strengthening us, renewing us, maturing us to be more like Jesus. It’s great to be able to look back on the year just gone and bear witness together to all that God in his grace has achieved in us and through us. That’s what celebration Sunday is all about – SEE YOU THERE!!!
