This Sunday we start our "Texts for Life" preaching series, which aims to give each one of us a 'toolkit' of verses to memorise, which should help us in a host of different life situations. At the end of it we should all have memorised 12 different verses.
We start off this Sunday with Psalm 119:11 - "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you". The team in the office have been challenged with different ways of making helping us memorise the verses, this Friday Ben Pocock led us all in the incredibly messy exercise of seeing who could write the verse most quickly using Alphabetti Spaghetti - you can see the winning effort above. Sadly we won't be doing this on Sunday, but I am going to teach you all a song (my return to worship leading!), and over the 12 weeks you'll see a host more wacky ideas for helping us memorise all 12 verses.
As with all things 21st Century we couldn't miss out on the social media opportunities the series provides. There is therefore a blog which you can find here, where every day starting from this Monday a different guest blogger will give their perspective on the verse for that week. There's also a twitter feed @textsforlife, and an email address firstname.lastname@example.org where we'd love you to send in any stories of how the texts have helped you, challenged you, changed you, or in any other way impacted your life.
Hope to see you on Sunday!
