Last Sunday we were challenged by the lives of the early followers of Jesus as recorded in Acts 2:44,45. ‘Holding everything in common, they sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.’ Their love for one another was expressed in their generosity. There will be opportunity to contribute to the ‘Living Generously’ offering to bless those in need.
On Sunday we look at a story in Mark’s gospel that tells us of a level of generosity that cost everything. It is generally known as the story of the ‘Widow’s Mite’, We will rather refer to it as the ‘Widow’s Gift’ as the story is less about the amount given than it is about the scale of the sacrifice.
On Sunday evening we will gather for our ‘Open to God’ service. An opportunity to worship and to wait upon God. We invite you to come and share testimony of what God is doing amongst us, and to receive prayer and blessing.
