Pastor's Letter

(During the corona crisis no monthly Bulletin is produced and therefore I'm not wrting a monthly letter; intsead you can find my twice-weekly houghts for the Week(end) if you go to Thought for the Week 2020.)

Dear friends,

Did you know that church buildings are never mentioned in the Bible – the word “church” always refers to the congregation of believers?

Did you know that the word “church” comes from the Greek word kyriake which means “belonging to the Lord”?

Did you know that the church is also referred to as “God’s family”, because all who believe are children of God through the blood of Jesus, and we are all brothers and sisters?

Did you know that the church is also referred to as “the saints”, because we’ve been set apart for God?

Did you know that the church is also called “God’s building”, because we – not the building where we meet – are the Temple where God dwells through his Spirit?

Did you know that the church is also referred to as “the body of Christ”, because we’re supposed to represent and reflect Jesus in this world, proclaiming and demonstrating the Kingdom that Jesus inaugurated?

Did you know that the church is also called “the Bride of the Lamb”, because when we finally meet face-to-face, we will be forever united with the one who loves us?

Never forget: if you belong to Jesus through faith, you are part of this marvellous and mysterious entity called “the church” – and Jesus has a mission for us here and now, and a wonderful eternity for us when we’re done here.

And whatever comes our way, we are more than conquerors in Jesus, because nothing can separate us from the love of God!

Blessings

David
