The battle between good and evil, God and the devil, freedom and captivity actually begins.

Last Sunday the arrival of Jesus (and John who preceded him), set the stage for Mark’s Gospel. Or it could be said that in their arrival, the battle lines were drawn. Today that battle between good and evil, God and the devil, freedom and captivity actually begins.
Christianity today has, to a large degree, lost our understanding of the reality of this battle, so we would do well to listen attentively in order for us to gain a true perspective.
Sunday evening will see us bring together the imperative to ‘examine ourselves’ at the Lord’s table, with the message to the church at Ephesus in revelation 2 as we ask ourselves whether we rightly hold together our fidelity to the truth with our love for each other.
Oh, and today we will welcome Mr Beaver into our midst – all the way from Narnia!
