Sunday 21 February - 9am

Everyone knows what it’s like to be tempted, and everyone knows what it’s like to give in to temptation. In fact even in relatively unimportant matters – like having an extra helping of dessert – temptation can be so strong that we can feel powerless to resist. We can feel that no matter how strong our resolutions are, we will give in at the first challenge.

This Sunday we will be hearing the account of Jesus being tempted in the desert. As listen closely to this account, we will consider how Jesus stood firm in the face of strong temptation; we will consider how God gives us the strength to get up again when we fall; and we will consider how God helps us to do what is right when temptation comes our way.

This Sunday we will meet at 9am for a service with Holy Communion. The Sunday school will meet at about 9:45am.

God’s blessings to you,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
