I love the word ABIDE. I don’t really know why. It sounds good, it’s pleasing to say. It’s one of those words we kind of know what it means but we don’t use it every day so we have to think a little about what it might mean. In John’s first letter he talks about abiding in God’s love – that makes me think of a baby resting in its parents’ arms, or the patience of an old couple, caring for one another at the end of their lives. Do we abide? What does it mean to us that God is love? On Sunday morning we’ll be doing some open heart surgery. Do join us. 10am. Everybody’s welcome here!
The service will be short and sweet! Why? Because I want to encourage as many people as possible to join me in an act of love and to pay a visit to our friends at Levenshulme Baptist Church who will be celebrating their 141st anniversary. As their congregation is now so small, it will mean a huge amount to them if some of us were to join them and make it a special occasion.
