The Pastors’ Pen

Celebration Sunday is sooooo close!!!

Don’t let this opportunity pass to invite people who are close to you, for Celebration Sunday is such a helpful moment – it is a tearing back of the veil, making us stop and reflect on how the kingdom of God is establishing itself in our ordinary lives. Do you get what I mean? Celebration Sunday is a time we stop and reflect on the stories that fill our lives that reveal God is at work. In the ‘cut and thrust’ of life often we are so busy and distracted we can’t even picture or sense our extraordinary God at work. This Sunday we get the rare opportunity to do this reflective moment on the last 25 years. Imagine the encouragement we are set to receive!

A big thanks to Ritchie who spearheaded this anniversary. He was the one who saw the date arriving and championed the great opportunity to make something of it. I wasn’t sure we would have time to pull it off, yet here is it.

Our staff team has worked hard drawing on you all to make this weekend a success. So, let’s not miss this opportunity. As I said at SCG on Sunday – invite your neighbour, invite your physio, invite your mechanic!

This is our story of 25 years. This is His story.

8  The Lord’s message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia – your faith in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, 9  for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10  and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead – Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
