The Stewardship Committee is asking members to focus on time for the next two months. Time is one of our greatest gifts and yet one so easily wasted. Good use of time , however, does not mean we should always be busy. Time spent in prayer, nurturing our relationships with family of friends, or just enjoying God’s wonderful world is time well spent. We need to take stock, ensuring a good balance of time spent on a variety of activities that will honour God and enrich our lives. During September and October the committee has planned several events to cover different aspects of our time and leaflets about these have been distributed by the elders and reminders will come from the pulpit and through the website and other media. See here for more details.
From the middle of September we are going to journey through the New Testament together using a dedicated edition of the bible which is easier to follow than the traditional version with chapters and verses. The aim will be to read about 10 pages for 5 days in the week – then meet once a week for coffee and chat with others who are doing the same thing – discussing points which a have struck you or are bothering you! In 8 weeks – if you keep at it – you will have read the whole of the New Testament. The aim is to get the big sweep of the story of Jesus and God’s love for us. We so often read the bible in short chunks and may miss the big picture!
