Dear Friends,
 
This week we have been blessed by the readings, fellowship and pray time each night as we met together for our week of prayer. If you are unfamiliar with the week of prayer, it is an annual event where Seventh-day Adventists around the world set time aside each day for specially prepared readings from Adventist World and spend time together in prayer. The theme this year has been on faithfulness in the Christian lifestyle.  

The readings will conclude this Saturday/Sabbath with one from the writings of Ellen G White.  You can click on the picture for the reading, plus all the other readings from the week. Below is an extract from our final reading. It concludes with TRUTH AS IT IS IN JESUS. "We are to present the truth as it is in Jesus. Christ came into the world to save sinners. For thirty years He lived our example. He endured insult, ignominy, reproach, rejection, and death; yet He lives. He is a living Saviour. He has ascended on high to make intercession for us. Just before His crucifixion, He prayed that His disciples might be one with Him, as He was one with the Father. Is it indeed a possibility that sinful, fallen man may be brought into such exalted relationship with Christ? Such a union with Christ will bring light and peace and comfort to our souls. When He went to heaven, He told His disciples, “It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” Who would not have the Comforter in times of trial? . . .Tell of the love of Christ, talk of His power, and you may have a heaven in this world to go to heaven in. Respond to the light of God, and you will be like a watered garden; your health will spring forth speedily; your light will rise in obscurity, and the glory of the Lord will be your reward."

Our Family Service will be on Zoom and Facebook this Saturday/Sabbath at 11.15am. The service will include a message on the Lord's Prayer. There will also be a children's story.  Blessings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

- Pastor Mark Borrett
