Here’s the news for the week. Do remember to check in to our facebook page or the website regularly for updates.
And he believed the Lord; and the Lord reckoned it to him as righteousness. Genesis 15.6
Abraham was he. He has just been promised descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky, despite being old and childless. His story was never quite that simple though, he had his moments of disbelief and disobedience too. But he kept going, kept believing, and God didn’t give up on him.
If Abraham is an example for us, he is a genuine one, not idealised and impossible to identify with.
Following on from a recent PCC meeting, we announced last week that we are going to be asking ourselves some big purpose questions during February. What does belief in God in 21 century Pitsmoor look like? How does it shape who we are? What we do? And who we reach? Plenty more on that coming soon.
Things to pray for
- Give thanks for all those examples of keeping on going
- for our nation, as faith in politicians and government needs restoring
- all who suffer discrimination and persecution
