The Body: many parts, many talents, one Lord – new series starts 11am, Sunday 12th September

10 September 2021

Dear friends 

I write to you at the end of a week that began with the Hebrew New Year. It began at sundown on the 6th September and usually starts with the blowing of a shofar, the ram’s horn, which is meant to ‘wake up the people from their slumber’. Whilst in Lancaster, I used to be part of a church that did just that every Rosh Hashanah and my sister and I had a go at blowing the ram’s horn with varying degrees of success! It marks a new season of carrying out good deeds of hope, whilst saying sorry about mistakes made in the past year in giving them to God. 
 
I’ll be including some of this in our talk on Sunday which will introduce a new theme. It’s not totally brand new as you’ll see, as we want to continue with what we think God is saying to us all. So from being Devoted, looking at the story of David and ending with some focus on spiritual battles, we move on to combine all this in ‘Building the Body’. 
 
Here are the key readings and themes over the next few weeks. You might want to look ahead, follow them yourself, with one other or in a group. We’ll be looking for people who might want to join in leading some of this over the next few weeks so do let myself or the ILT know if you want to pray, read or lead something else. Or if you want to help facilitate a gathering by welcoming people for example. We’ll be looking to make the theme as accessible as possible to all ages and experiences so feel free to share your thoughts in a creative way.
 
PLEASE JOIN US FOR ANY OR ALL OF THESE SERVICES AT 11am IN CHURCH EACH SUNDAY OR YOU CAN WATCH THEM LIVE, AT HOME, ON MBC’s YOUTUBE CHANEL.
