So what’s your favourite book? It could be a children’s story. It could be a novel. It could be a cookbook, a picturebook or a biography. I love encyclopaedias and atlases. Over the next few weeks we’re going to give one another the opportunity to talk about our favourite books in church – why do we like them? How do they inspire us? Do we associate them with particular times or places? So – volunteers please! Who wants to go first?
The other thing we’re going to be doing is looking at a whole book of the Bible at a time. So often when we look at a single passage or verse we can miss the broad sweep of our Bible, its bold messages and themes. Last Sunday you suggested some of the books you’d like to read and so this Sunday where better to start than with Genesis.
As if that wasn’t enough, this Sunday we’ll be celebrating harvest and giving thanks to God for the many fruits of the earth. As part of our celebrations we’re going to be collecting various items for our friends at Boaz Trust to give out to asylum seekers. They are collecting tins and packets of dry food, they’d like toiletries and they can even take fresh fruit and vegetables too.
