Richard Writes...

Home » News » Richard Writes...

The song invites us to 'Count our Blessings', and this is something that we need to articulate to help each other sense the way that God is moving. Active in the spectacular, but more often in the mundanities of everyday life.

So, a thought — when did you last think about the story of your faith journey? Is it time to update our Christian CV, as there is the danger that the new minister or someone else in the congregation may ask us the question? So how did it start; what have been the big moments, and what recently or currently has touched us, made us think, helped awareness; where have we seen God's hand at work, be it a huge demonstration or a barely discernible hint? It may be currently faith is a struggle due to something that has happened, and, here again, talking about this could bring forth those who have travelled or are journeying on the same path.
