Living in fractured relationships is very debilitating, as we witness in relationships around us every day - and often enough also within ourselves. Fractured relationships result in people getting hurt. Healing both broken relationships and fractured people is the aim of godly reconciliation, and forgiveness is God's way of restoring relationships and people.
This Sunday we will be hearing a reading from the Bible that talks about God’s reconciling love. We will hear that God regards healthy relationships so highly that he has provided a step-by-step reconciliation process, and he invites all of us to follow it. This is a delicate restoration process which seeks the wellbeing of individuals and communities by protecting people's reputation through respecting their privacy and confidentiality. Its aim is nothing less than life-long reconciliation and peace in relationships between people, and between people and God.
This Sunday we will be meeting at 9:00am for a service with Holy Communion. Pastor Allan Heppner will be visiting from Melbourne, and will be delivering the sermon.
