Last week in our worship we spoke about how sometimes pictures say more that words.
Our new church posters deliberately don't have any words to allow people to get thinking, the message is Love is Patient.
Never more have we had to exercise patience as we slowly try and move forward during these difficult days. Patience as we wait for our internet to reconnect as we are in the middle of a work zoom meeting, patience as we try and explain a task set by the teacher for home learning, patience as we wait to get served when only 6 people are allowed in the store, never more have we needed patience.
When we think of that famous passage from Corinthians 13 the first thing Paul writes is that love is patient, top of the list. I sometimes think we underestimate how powerful patience is.
As a faith community we pray for patience as we wait for our churches to reopen and we pray that we would be shine his love through us as we wait.
In-Church Sunday Services and Private Prayer : Whilst we remain in these heightened restrictions our Church building must remain closed for Sunday Worship and Private Prayer.
Places of Worship Open for Easter ?? : Many of you may have noted the Scottish Government’s statement about their desire to open Places of Worship in time for Passover and the Easter Weekend. At this point we do not know what shape or form that may take, we may still be restricted to 20 people in the church for a service. As soon as we know more we will let you know what our plans are for re-opening our Church.
Meanwhile we will continue to connect digitally, here are the links for this morning’s Service and we pray you know God’s presence as we worship together.
