10u30: Holy Communion in the company of the Catholic community at Justus-Lipsiuscollege. Jack will lead the service and Jane will preach on the Good Samaritan. The choir will sing at this service, with a very brief practice beforehand. Help with looking after small children etc very welcome.
18u30: Holy Communion - our normal service, but the choir will have the evening off. Jack will lead the service and Jane will preach (NB: a different sermon from the one in the morning!).
Both services will be followed by refreshments.
20u15: PCC (church council): a very short meeting of the PCC will take place. It is understood that some members of the PCC will attend church in the morning this Sunday, and they will be excused from the meeting in the evening. Jack will send out an agenda this week.
- Very many thanks to Jane, Bouke, Jesmar and Jacob for leading our break-out groups at yesterday's service on the theme of Made in God's Image. This was a moving and honest spiritual sharing and was precious to many who attended.
- Simon Tyndall (last week's preacher) has sent us a poem which he has been enjoying recently, Missing God, the text of which is attached.
- Jacob offers these articles on women in the church and biblical authority: http://ntwrightpage.com/Wright_Women_Service_Church.htm and http://ntwrightpage.com/Wright_Bible_Authoritative.htm, both by Tom Wright, formerly Anglican bishop of Durham, UK.
Have a great week!
