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 every situation there are things to be thankful to God for. We just have to decide whether we are going to be thankful or not! It’s easy to look at what’s not going right – often based on our feelings. We need to discipline ourselves to look for the good in things and to speak these out – in the tongue is life and death! We need to give thanks to God ‘in every circumstance’. We need to be encouragers of one another, looking for the good in one another and speaking it into each others lives so we build each other up. The media is rife with negativity and criticism of others (particularly at the moment!). We are called to be different, to be the light in the darkness. Let’s think about who we can encourage today and give thanks to God for them.
Next weekend we are away on our annual church camp at Glenroy. There will be no newsletter or Sunday service next weekend (Oct 1st) and I look forward to seeing many of you out at camp instead.
With love & blessings, Sandra
