I was reading this morning in Luke 15:8-10, where Jesus says:
“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
This is in the middle of three stories about God's passion for lost people, the lost sheep, the lost coin and the prodigal son. This Sunday with our carol service we have a great opportunity for people far from God to hear about how God came into our messed up world to with a message of good news which would bring great joy. Please be inviting people to come, we're doing the same meeting at 9, 11 and 7 - you never know, it might be your friend who all heaven is rejoicing over by the end of the meeting. Be bold!
I have heard rumours of snow this weekend. Rest assured that we'll meet whatever happens, even if it's just me and the rest of our family who manage to walk in!
