Minister's Thoughts

The present age has been described by some commentators as the “Post Truth Age.” That is to say that the truth is not important and it doesn’t matter. This would be a foolish path to follow as Jesus said “…there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. (Matthew 10:26) Furthermore to deny truth is to deny freedom, because Jesus also said “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32.)
  • Reading 1 – Acts 1:1-11

    Reading one for the week:

    Acts 1 5-9:  "For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."  Then they gathered around him and asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?"  He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."  After he said this, he was taken up before their eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
