Jesus says, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Coming down from the mountain

We had a real treat on Sunday as Adeola, our newly licensed lay reader, showed us the importance of holding onto Christ in our everyday lives. She used the example of the Transfiguration, where the disciplines James, John and Peter see a glimspse of Jesus' glory on a mountaintop. Many of us have had moments like this, where God's glory is revealed to us and we feel like we are on top of the world. But like the disciples we cannot live on the mountaintop; we have to come down into our everyday lives and work out God's will in the world. 

Many thanks again to everyone who helped make night shelter such a successful. It was a real privilege to serve again this year, and I hope everyone involved enjoyed it. 

A reminder that our new priest, Rev. Alison, is being welcomed to St. George's on Sunday (18th). The service starts at 10.30am as normal, but please do arrive early to welcome all our guests. A lunch will be served after the service. 

Jesus and Our Storms

This morning at St. George's we heard the story of Jesus calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee. His disciples were terrified of the storm, and feared that Jesus had abandoned them. But Jesus had not forgotten them, and calmed their fears and commanded the storm to cease. As Rev. Nejib reminded us, Jesus does not promise that there will be no difficulties or storms in our lives - in fact, we are all sure to have them. But we should remember that Jesus does not forget or abandon us, and realize that we can discover Jesus even (or especially) in the middle of our hard times. 

It was also a joy this morning to come together to celebrate the baptism of our brother Elias. We pray for his journey of faith over the years to come. 

A reminder that the Rev. Alison will be licensed at St. George's on Sunday 18th Feb. Please remember to be in church earlier than usual to welcome our guests coming for the service.
