Dear Friends,

"THERE are times in our spiritual experience when human counsel or sympathy, or religious ordinances, fail to comfort or help us. Why does our gracious God permit this? Perhaps it is because we have been living too much without him, and he therefore takes away everything upon which we have been in the habit of depending, that he may drive us to himself. It is a blessed thing to live at the fountain head. Having nothing of our own to trust to, but resting upon the merits of Jesus. Beloved, when we are brought to a thirsting condition, we are sure to turn to the fountain of life with eagerness." Spurgeon, C. H. (1892). Daily Help (p. 348).  

The account of the birth of Jesus Christ in the Bible highlights the critical role of Joseph, who became the legal and adopted father of Jesus. God took Joseph to a much deeper level of dependance on Him. The Lord is seeking to do this in each of us. This Sabbath/Saturday, Pastor Mark will share a message on the first of Joseph's four dreams recorded in Matthew Chapter 1 and 2, as part of a sermon series called "Repeat the Sounding Joy". Our Family Service will be on Zoom and Facebook this Saturday/Sabbath at 11.15am. 

Please also note that on Saturday December 19th at 7pm, the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft Seventh-day Adventist Churches will hold a Festive Community Service on Zoom and Facebook with carols, readings and a short message.

Blessings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

- Pastor Mark Borrett
