The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

Give in to God: resist the devil, and he will run away from you. The nearer you go to God, the nearer he will come to you. Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up.

James 4:7-8,10

A Thought for Today

Be servants of communion and of the culture of encounter! I would like you to be almost obsessed about this. Be so without being presumptuous, imposing “our truths”, but rather be guided by the humble yet joyful certainty of those who have been found, touched and transformed by the Truth who is Christ, ever to be proclaimed.
