Service Review: 14th August

Today's service was taken by Mrs. Maudine Morris and her theme of Fire was thoughtful and uplifting. We were greeted by images of flames on the two screens, as we came into Church. Hymn 43 was "Come let us praise the Lord, with joy our God proclaim", and was followed by prayers of adoration, confession, and the Lord's Prayer sung.

We now saw images of the Great Fire of London, and Maudine talked about the re-building improvements made to the city after the devastation of the fire.

Hymn 167 came next with it s chorus of "So light up the fire and let the flame burn, Open the door let Jesus return."

The bible readings: Jeremiah 23 v 23-29 read by Alison Critchley, and Luke 12 v 29-56 read by Heather Laycock, came next.

Hymn 164 "Your words to me are life and health" followed the readings.

Maudine's sermon on the theme of Fire was thought provoking as she brought together the bible readings and hymns. Fire has the power to destroy, cleanse and regenerate . Luke 12 v 49-56 says "I came to set the earth on fire. You can look at the earth and the sky and predict the weather , why then don't you know the meaning of this present time?"

Jesus says that we too should have a greater awareness of the world around us and the needs of its people.

St. Ignatius Loyola said "Go and set the world on fire so that God is glorified and His kingdom comes."

In the words of the next hymn, Hymn 693: "Beauty for brokenness. Come change our love from a spark to a flame."

Prayers of Intersession followed and the service ended with Hymn 564. "O thou who camest from above."

Render Unto Caesar

When Jesus was a child the Romans introduced the census tax. It was so unpopular that a man called Judas – a good revolutionary name – led an uprising against it.

The Romans dealt ruthlessly with those who’d taken part in the uprising. The countryside was littered with the crosses bearing the bodies of dead or dying revolutionaries. It was a warning and a reminder to the people that paying tax was not optional, but compulsory. You have to wonder what effect this had on Jesus as a boy.
