Be hospitable to yourself for God is hospitable to you
Hospitable

Jesus challenged us to love one another as we love ourselves.  Both emphasis are important: there is a sense in which we can’t really love other people freely and without strings until we have learned to truly love ourselves as God loves us. Duncan was talking this morning about hospitality as a way of expressing community and love: sitting down to eat with others. I wondered: have we learned to sit down and eat with ourselves? Have we learned

Being an introvert: thoughts from John
introvert

I remember once attending the Christian festival Spring Harvest at Butlins in Ayr in the late 1980s. I found the evening gathering, attended by probably thousands of very exuberant Christians, totally daunting. I was glad to discover that the organisers had thoughfully arranged a small room, in a different building, for people who couldn’t cope with crowds. We were welcome to go there, and be still, and talk if we wanted to, or otherwise sit reflectively.

Banquet

Sharing food together Sharing food is integral to our life together. That was the theme of Duncan’s sermon this morning. The Bible passage was Luke 5:27-32, where Jesus attends a great banquet in his honour hosted by the tax collector Levi, attended by all Levi’s tax collector friends. Earlier in the service, he’d asked as to talk with those around us about meals which, for whatever reason, have been memorable to us as individuals. Duncan reminded

Some thoughts from John on the subject of Phil’s sermon
John at Brodie

John writes Thanks Phil for your sermon, and for reminding us that genuine faith will always express itself in actions.  As you said, this is true of all the things we say we believe: we may express words of compassion for people in need, people facing inequalities, but what are these words worth if we do nothing? I think you were absolutely right to remind us that there’s more to faith than saying the words ‘I believe in Jesus.’  Rather

Faith expressed in action: report on Phil’s sermon this morning on James 2:14-26
Faith and works

This morning, Phil was preaching on James 2:14-26: 14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action,
