The Church

HEBREWS 10:24-25

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing,
but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

t’s not an easy thing for regular church attenders to grasp, when asked to think of Church as extending much further than an organised association of people focused around a building and a service on a Sunday.  The Church or the Kirk is really about a community of people focused and living in communion with Jesus. When we think of church from that perspective we begin to understand the possibilities of Sanctuary First as a nurturing resource and community for those who have left the buildings behind but not the church.

 

Lord,

I often wonder what you think of us

I mean

The church,

Your family

The people who call you - 

Father

Caught up in so many controversies

Divided over opinions as to right and wrong

Different groups declaring UDI

Standing apart on a principle

Brothers and sisters 

Missing on a Sunday

Missing one another

All of us silently 

Hurting

Wishing things could change

Singing your praises

Reading your Word

Praying for unity

Longing for revival

Knowing 

We’ve truly got ourselves into a fankle 

Come Holy Spirit

Untangle our mess

Reshape our minds

Restore our faith

Let hope return

Renew our love 

For one another
