Our service this morning was led by members of the congregation, and was well attended. Anthony Lane gave the call to worship, which at this time of year was very appropriate, so I have quoted it here;

Time is sliding

not away from us, but towards us.

This is God’s time: the forgiving time,

the loving time, the renewing time.

A time for compassion, a time for kindness,

a time for humility, a time for gentleness,

a time for patience, a time for worship.

Let us gather in God’s time, the crossover time

between one year and the next and know we are called

into the eternal love of a God who is timeless.

Ruth Foster talked about putting on the armour of God, aimed at the children, using a woolly hat, scarf and warm gloves to illustrate her message.  Ruth Gilbert reinforced that message and expanded upon it, how we should be aware of what we think, say and do. And we sang some rousing hymns!

We look back on 2012 and forward into 2013 trusting that God will lead and guide us.
