‘Sitting with sinners’: thoughts from John about Psalm 1
John Down town 2

Thanks Phil for your sermon this morning reminding us to seek, and to constantly remember that God’s gift of Jesus is the source of healing, and wholeness, and joy, and for pointing out the distinctive features of people who know themselves blessed. I was just reflecting on which comes first – the blessing, or the transformed living.  I think the two go hand-in-hand.  The blessing is, as you said, God’s free gift to us in Jesus. We realise

Psalm 1: Living blessed!

A wee report from John of Phil's sermon this morning. Phil was preaching this morning on Psalm 1- the first of a series on some of the Psalms. He focussed particularly the first two verses: Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. Our longing for happiness Phil began

Lonely branchy willow tree beside a big river in spring season..

Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows

Book Group report from Shona
Book Group

We had a really lovely evening last Thursday with lots of chat and stories. Thirteen of us were there which was great. We eventually came round to talking about the books! The house between tides  was enjoyed by everyone who read it although one or two found the swapping back and forth between past and present confusing. Everyone liked the description of the characters and the twists and turns and the clever ending. It got 4.5/5. This must be the
