Last Sunday we started a new series in church studying the messages given to the seven churches in the book of Revelation. The message simply conveyed both by Judith our preacher on the day, and on the image above was: "Have we lost our first love?"
Now if I’m honest, at this stage I was about to trot out the usual phrase “If God seems far away - who moved” but I’m glad I didn’t. Not least when I came across this gentle blog from someone else who was experiencing a lack of passion for God. I commend her observations to you.
Looking at former churches in scripture needn’t simply be out of historical interest, but could also prompt the question: “What is God saying to our church today?” I hope that over the next month or two, we might be able to spend time with God, and as well as seeking His guidance for our individual lives, ask on behalf of our shared life here too. I look forward to receiving your observations and answers.
