One of the great temptations in life is to become bitter toward those people who have said or done things to hurt us. If we give in to this temptation, we can become trapped in a cycle of anger, and this can leave us depressed, and unable to get on with living life joyfully.
This Sunday we will be hearing a reading from the Bible that shows us a different way to deal with the temptation to become bitter. We will hear how, as we pray in Jesus’ name, God frees us to show mercy and forgiveness to those who have hurt us. We will hear how through this God brings us into a heavenly way of life, and leads us to share his blessings with others.
This Sunday we will meet at 9:00am for a service with Holy Communion. The Sunday school will meet at about 9:45am
God’s peace to you,
Fraser Pearce, Pastor
