Welcome to our service today. It’s great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee. If this is your first time at BBC we especially welcome you.
In Joshua 3:10 we read ‘and this is how you shall know that the Living God is among you’. Sound familiar? If you have spent time in the large hall at Glenroy Lodge where we gather together for our camp each year, you may remember that this is the verse above the fireplace. I love that the word LIVING has been included. The writer of Joshua could just have said ‘God’ but no – he wrote LIVING God. God is not dead! He is alive and lives in us through His Holy Spirit. We know He is our Living God by looking around us – seeing the extravagant beauty in creation, reading about the intricate workings of our incredibly designed bodies, observing the miracle of a new born baby, seeing and hearing testimonies of healings and changed lives and in so many other ways. We are not blind to these things but sadly many are. Let us together and in unity declare aloud that the LIVING (and loving!) GOD is amongst us so that others may come to know Him like we have.
Love & blessings
