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.
As king, Solomon had everything a person could want, but in the book of Ecclesiastes he says that he “hated life”. So what happened?
His marvellous accomplishments left him bitter because he pursued them as a means to personal satisfaction. Personal satisfaction, by itself, is empty because we are alone in the enjoyment we receive. What is our attitude about what we do? If our goals are to satisfy only ourselves, we will find ourselves empty, seeking one thing after another as Solomon did. If our goal is to serve God and others, then we will experience a full life, one that won’t leave us bitter.
I am so grateful for our church family as I observe the hours that so many put in, serving God so faithfully. To this end also, thank you to so many of you that contributed to making Kat and Brent’s wedding a day not only they but many of us will always remember.
With love & blessings,
