You’re Welcome!

If drama always gives us a new insight, then the presentation of Hannah’s life on Sunday was no exception. Robin’s innovative service had something for everyone as we worshipped together, but the demonstration of how not to welcome someone to […]



I am sure that sounds more like a sledgehammer for the month than a thought for the week to most people. So why talk about it? I suppose it’s because God has been giving me a nudge to do so, […]
