Happiness and Now-ness
Inverness

A very personal reflection from John Dempster on this morning's service. Duncan’s theme this morning was on the ‘now-ness’ of God, the God who is present with us in the ‘now’ of our lives, the God in whom ‘we live and move and have our being’ (Acts 17:28) Before the sermon, Jonathan spoke about the Just praying initiative – copies of the Just praying booklets for adults, teenagers and children were distributed at last Sunday’s service

The pupils were welcome to return to the room at lunch breaks to further reflect. To help them, the Prayer Space was divided into

A powerful sermon from Jonathan

You may ask for anything in my name and I will do it.’ What does it mean, Jonathan questioned, to ask for something
