|Thy Will be Done - 13 October|
to the study of the Lord's prayer, John progressed to the line 'Thy
will be done'. He opened the informal time with a rendering of a good
news / bad news joke. In the gospel there is also good news, and a bit
of bad news. But this time it is not a joke. The good news is that God
is all good, nothing sinful can be around him, so we can always rely on
him. However the bad news is we have all sinned! Jesus, as the son of
God had no sins, but he took our sins, and gave us God's forgiveness.

blankets. The fruits of their labours will be on display in the church on Sunday 27 October.
church will also be open on Saturday 26th 10am to 12 noon to receive
your items, or bring them any Sunday morning. Remember if you do not
knit then buying a wooly hat or item will be equally welcomed by those
who will feel the bitter cold in a far of land this coming winter.
