Numbers were low this Sunday with many from our community at Soul Survivor. Our thoughts and prayers were with them particularly following the heavy rain!
We continued with the current theme What is the Gospel? and focussed on unity and diversity by looking at some detail at Phlippians chapter one. Before doing this we considered the background to this letter which was written by St Paul and gained a greater understanding of the context in which it was written and received.
Our prayer time was based on verses 3 to 11 of chapter 1 and we specifically prayed a blessing on each person present that ” your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness tha comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.”
We discussed how we might support and encourage each other to behave in a manner worthy of the Gospel and stand firm without fear. We exchanged ideas and thoughts about how we as a community can share the same love, spirit and purpose with other Christian groups in the Wolverhampton.
