WMC: February 2017
It was great to meet up again in January and catch up about the holidays.
This was our last YMOSES with Zack and Jordan before they head off on their adventure with Latin Link so it was good to hear a bit more about their trip and wish them well and thank them and Ken and Gloria for offering us such warm hospitality over the last 6 years.
We listened to excerpts from the radio 4 morning service from 1 January by John Bell from the Iona Community — reflecting on letting go of disappointments, failures, hurts from the last year and then being open to the invitation that Philip offered to Nathaniel 'Come and see' — this year are we open to discover 'the Jesus who is bigger than the baby at the centre of the nativity play, the Jesus who is more dynamic than the motionless figure in the stained-glass windows, the Jesus who is more risky, inclusive, hospitable, transforming than the rather insipid saviour we may have been introduced to...'?
Our next get-together will be at the Worths' home on March 12 at 7:15 pm.
If you are at secondary school and would like to come along and try our faith-based discussion group you would be more than welcome. Please give me a ring — Jane Kent (765421)
