Bi-weekly update 13/10/2021

Dear Church Family,

All the seasons have their charm. Autumn is a lovely time. The colours are beautiful and the days are crisp; good for getting things done.

For some it is a challenging time. As the days get shorter, we prepare for the clocks to go back an hour on 31 October.

Halloween is also coming up on the 31 October; the pre-christian Druids apparently told people to dress up like goblins and witches as a disguise to divert the evil spirits’ attention away from their feast to mark the end of the summer light and start of winter’s darkness. 

The coming of the Gospel made all that unnecessary. Jesus is the Lord of light and life who banishes the darkness before the feet of all who follow Him:Jesus says in John 8:12:
‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’                                                                                                        John 8:12
On October 31 this month we’re having a ‘light party’ to celebrate the victory of Jesus Christ over the powers of darkness. Your children and grandchildren are warmly invited to come – the invitation is below.

As the nights get longer, Jesus is the one who banishes the darkness of sin and death and fear. He is the light we have to share in this season of celebration and joy, as this spoken word by Glen Scrivener explains … Your brother in Christ,
