Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
At our e4 summer camp we were reminded of the importance of spiritual disciplines. I’ll be honest…..I struggle to have a regular daily time of reading my Bible. I know I should, but I don’t! I found this piece of advice particularly helpful – find a book (of the Bible), find a time and find a place. So at the start of the new year I am determined to start over and try and become more regular in this. I have found a book – Matthew (why not start at the beginning!). I have found a time – I’m a morning person so I am getting up a bit earlier to make time. I have found a place – a chair in my office with a comfy cushion and always a cup of tea. So far, it’s going fairly well. I haven’t been 100%, but we were also reminded not to beat ourselves up but to start small and work up to bigger things.
I am enjoying my new routine and throughout the day can now dwell on what the main points are that the Holy Spirit has shown me as I’ve read God’s Word which is light and truth and a firm foundation for us all.
With love & blessings,
