About relationships (with God and with each other)

Communion during Lent

During Lent churches are stripped of decoration and flowers are removed.
This helps us focus on God and not be distracted. There is so much in life that distracts us from listening to Jesus.

We listen when we hear him speaking to the Samaritan women at the well in John 4. She is feisty but she eventually recognises Jesus as the Messiah. He does not judge her and meets her in the place she is at.

During communion I recognise Jesus talks to me and shares his whole self with me. I meet with Jesus at the foot of the cross and kneel before him. It is time for us all to be united in our recognition of Jesus as a signpost to God.

Bible reading

I like Lent because it reminds me to spend time reading the Bible, especially the passages leading up to Jesus death on cross. Some times when I am busy, I rely too much on internet posts for Godly nourishment, so it is good to return to the written word.

I enjoy getting lost in time of worship and I often feel close to God during that time but the most important time is to spend quality time with his word, in the quietness of his presence.

Thank you Lord we can worship you in both song and in your written word.
