Born again by the Spirit; alive in the Spirit: the wonder of Christian life: a report of Duncan’s sermon this morning
Born_again

Duncan’s sermon this morning was on John 3, a very well-known passage. It tells the story of a night-time conversation between Jesus, and Nicodemus, who was one of the Jewish leaders. Perhaps he came after darkness had fallen because he didn’t want his fellow-Pharisees, who already saw Jesus as ‘trouble’, to find out about his visit. Two memorable statements Among many other memorable verses, the chapter is famous for two: In verse 3, Jesus

For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.’ 3 Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.’ 4 ‘How can someone be born

Book group news
Book Group

The book-group met last week – seven people braved the weather. They had a good blether, and discussed all the books as follows: Hitman Anders by Jonas Jonasson- it was felt it didn’t translate too well, it was funny, but bits that didn’t quite make sense!  2.5/5, but much better if you can understand the Swedish culture - then 4/5! First Wives Club by Olivia Goldsmith -  hard to get into but worthwhile - interesting, but glad we’re not

Edem

Duncan was thinking about things in our own lives which keep others from seeing in us something of the loveliness of God. It made me think about the ‘outer courtyard’

How was the way of living, worshipping, and relating to God which Jesus taught and modelled radically different from what had gone before? Jesus challenged his listeners to see things differently.
