Thought of the Week:

Jesus was brought to the Temple to be presented to the Lord as the first-born son. Simeon, a devout man who attended the Temple daily, took the child in his arms, and cried to God, “I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!” Luke 2:30-32 (NLT)
The Advent or Coming of Jesus, the Son of God, into our world changed the world, and our lives forever. So often we are drawn to the depressing darkness of the world, but now let us look away from that darkness, and see the light that Simeon saw. The Apostle John wrote in his Fourth Gospel, ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.' John 1:5 (NLT)
Now hear Jesus, himself, saying to the people during his earthly ministry, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” John 8:12 (NLT)
Simeon saw that light in the Christ Child; a light that can never be extinguished. Do we see it also? The more we look away from the darkness, and look to Jesus, the more we shall experience his light shining brighter and brighter in our lives.

Current News

New book in Church Library
The Ark, the Reed and the Fire Cloud
by Jenny L Cote, Living Ink Books 2008
This story is written through the eyes of the animals that came to the Ark. Their story includes exciting biblical truth, and weaves History, Geography, Science and Mathematics into the adventure.
Max is a Scottish terrier and Liz a petite black cat from France, who become the brave leaders of their group along with their lovable partners and various other animals they meet along the way. The end climaxes with unexpected twists and turns, taking the reader from despair to hope.

Do you have a cat or a dog; what comfort does it give you? In later books of this series, The Maker sends messages to them for their next missions with Prophets, Kings, shepherds and Roman soldiers, Mary and Joseph, composers and more.
