Looking up, looking down

A wee report of this morning's sermon by John Dempster There were two sections to Duncan’s sermon on the ascension of Jesus (Acrs 1:1-11)  this morning. In the earlier part of the sermon he reflected on how we are to understand what happened that day nearly six weeks after Easter, while in the later he part drew practical lessons for us from the reality of the resurrection. For Duncan is convinced (and I share this conviction) that something

He gives us all his love

Today is Ascension Sunday, and at this morning's service we reflected on the Ascension of Jesus – his returm to another dimension, as described in Acts:1:1-11 Jesus Taken Up Into Heaven In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave

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
