Happiness and Now-ness

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

Prayer Space at Inverness Royal Academy

Jonathan Fraser gave a fascinating insight this morning into the Prayer Space which was held recently in Inverness Royal Academy.

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

A very personal take on this morning's sermon by John Dempster: This morning Jonathan Fraser, the Youth Minister, spoke very powerfully on the Gospel lectionary passage, John 14:1-14, with particular reference to John 14:13-14, where Jesus says ‘And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask for anything in my name and I will do it.’ What does it mean, Jonathan questioned, to ask for something

Imperfect perfect
Book Group

Book Group news from Shona: Just to let you all know that we met last Thursday night in the Lighthouse and had a lovely evening. We discussed "Perfect" but no-one really enjoyed it. It only got a lowly 2/5. "The fault in our stars" was only read by 2 ladies so it wasn't given a score but both enjoyed it. This month we have chosen " The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak and "The girl who saved the king of Sweden" by Jonas Jonasson. We are meeting again
