Don't Look Back

I thought our three preachers on Sunday - Ben Pocock, Lydia Harris-Lane and Liam Parker - did really well. It makes me so proud to see people from our community flourishing, in whatever context they are in, and I certainly felt very proud on Sunday.

At the end of Lydia's preach I encouraged everyone to write the words "Don't Look Back" on a piece of paper and stick them somewhere that you'll see them every day. We need to be people who live life looking forward to all that God has for us, rather than back at past failures, sins, hurts or anything else that will cause us to get stuck. Why not take a moment to listen to what Lydia had to say here (she only had 13 minutes after all the baptisms were over, so it won't take long!), and then find your piece of card and stick it up somewhere.

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Phil 3:13-14)
