Parents’ Evening (for parents of Young People)

Dan Ovens would like to invite all parents of teens to his house (16 Arnolds Mead) on Thursday 4th May 7.30pm for a parents’ evening. The idea is to provide an opportunity for you to find out how your child is getting on, about what they get up to and future youth ministry plans (without relying on prising information out of your child!). There will also be space for you to give honest evaluation, ask questions and share any concerns. Chat to Dan if needed!

From the Treasurer.

We are looking for volunteers to add to our team of counters for the weekly offering. This involves being available to count and record the Sunday morning offerings at 12.30pm for about 20 minutes approximately once a month, starting in May. The task is always done by a counter and a recorder.  If you are willing to join the team please contact Roger Hammett or Michael Prior.

Open Meeting

Good Friday Walk of Witness

We will have our traditional Good Friday service at Priory Street at 9am (14th April).  This will be followed by the annual Walk of Witness with other Christians in Corsham.  We meet at the cross (near the Co-op) and walk down the High Street.  Refreshments are available at the conclusion of the walk at St. Aldhelm’s Church.

Easter Saturday Outreach – Corsham town centre

We will be having an outreach event on Saturday 15th April in The Chapel Gardens (the patch of grass outside the Co-op) from 10am- 12.  We will be serving hot cross buns, chocolate eggs, handing out Easter material, inviting people to our Easter service and holiday club.  There will be children’s activities – crafts, face- painting, glitter tattoos and lots of fun.  Assistance is required to set up a couple of gazebos at around 9am and to clear them away at the end. If you are able to hand out hot cross buns and chocolate, supervise crafts, face paints, apply glitter tattoos (incredibly simple but tutorial will be given!) then please speak to Rhiannon as to how you can support this outreach event in order to share God’s amazing love for us with our community.  Help share the truth about Easter.

LIVING IN HARMONY

kathylarkman,

 

lesley-grindrod

Lesley Grindrod, Contributor for today’s blog

Several years ago I auditioned for a wonderful mixed-voice choir in Bath. I joined the alto section, and was soon totally immersed in the wonder of seventy-plus different voices uniting together to make one magnificent ‘wall of sound.’

I learned that achieving true harmony required great diligence, patience, humility, and trust between a group of singers all pursuing the same goal – to produce a beautiful sound. It often meant singing monotonous lines (ask any alto) and allowing others to shine. It meant following the conductor carefully and sticking accurately to my part, even when those on either side were singing entirely different notes. But when true choral harmony was achieved, it touched not only those singing, but everyone listening as well.

Living in harmony with one another in everyday life isn’t too different from musical harmony. For most of us it’s a target that requires just as much practise, trust and humility, but like musical harmony, it’s worth fighting for.  Like musical harmony it produces joy and life in those who pursue it, and touches those around them.

HarmonyLadies, we are not called to sing our song alone. We may feel the part our heavenly conductor has given us to sing is small, monotonous or insignificant, but without it the sound we produce together is weakened and less effective.

Romans 15:5-6 (Message Bible) says: “May our dependably steady and warmly personal God develop maturity in you so that you get along with each other as well as Jesus gets along with us all. Then we’ll be a choir – not our voices only, but our very lives singing in harmony in a stunning anthem to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus.”

BIBLICAL FRIENDSHIP

kathylarkman,

Vicky Stephenson, Contributor for today’s blog

Okay, so I feel I am getting the hang of this one anothering thing now, I just need to gather a group of people around me, pray for them, encourage them, forgive them and love them. I can manage this.  So I’ll do what I usually do; find people like me who I have lots in common with: so 35-45, married with kids, working women. Then we will know where one another is coming from and muddle through together.

NO!! This is not the biblical model, this is the world’s model as well as my default. Hence I have running friends, school mum friends, doctor friends – but the bible holds a challenge to this.

What is the point of biblical friendship and one anothering? It is to point one another to Christ and build up His church. Being surrounded with people who are at the same point as you might feel comfortable but is not where the Bible tells us to go for support and for the challenges that help us grow.

The Bible encourages inter-generational friendship, older women to teach younger women; younger women to energise or bring fresh eyes to older women.

At the moment I feel I sit in the middle (which is not the same as being middle aged!!), so I have wonderful older/wiser (the two often go together but not always) women who speak wisdom into my life challenging me to be self controlled and kind. I also meet with younger (in age or in faith) women whom I try to encourage and support.

Titus 2

3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. 

It is in sharing the journey even though we are at different point that we can :  Proverbs 27:17: As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Older women can share their story with me and point out areas where I can increase my maturity and challenge me to live life to the fullest as God has called me. With younger women I can share the tough seasons, be it young babies, or new married life and encourage as each new stage is reached. With single women I can rejoice at the freedom this allows them to do God’s work or mourn if this is not the place they want to be. We all have stories of God’s love we can share with one another to encourage and burdens we can share and pray through together.

Remember though, water may only flow downhill God’s love and grace flows in all directions so sometimes it is the younger women who challenge and the older ones who need support. All seasons have their ups and downs and we need each other through all of them.

So next time you reach out to someone try taking a risk and choosing someone in a completely different place to you and trust God will work through that relationship and mightily bless you both.

MATTHEW: DAILY BIBLE READINGS

Eddie,
heart containing the text matthew 22:37-40

         As you read each passage, pray for God’s help. Ask yourself:

  • What does God reveal about Himself?
  • How is your own heart revealed?
  • How does this passage underline the wonder of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ, and your own need of Christ as Saviour and Lord?
  • Turn these truths into prayer and praise.

12 March Mt 22:34-40

Jesus sums up God’s law in two positive commandments: wholehearted love for God and neighbour (vv.37-40). No surprise here, for God’s law is not arbitrary. It reflects His own character of goodness and love, and we should too. But the call to love exposes our hearts, for we still love our own kingdom more than His. So even while we pray for strength to live a life of love, we confess our failings, and give thanks that we are not saved by the perfection of our love, but by His perfect love for us. Hallelujah!

13 March Mt 22:41-46

This time Jesus puts a question to the Pharisees concerning the Messiah’s identity. How can he be both David’s son (v.42) and David’s Lord (v.43)? Surely if he is David’s son, then David must be ‘lord’ to him? The incarnation provides the only answer. As to his humanity, the Christ is born in the line of David as his son (Mt 1:1-17), but as the eternal Son of God he is also David’s Lord (1:20,23). They marvelled at his wisdom (v.46), but alas, still refused his truth. That is always our danger.

14 March Mt 23:1-12

Mt 23, like the Sermon on the Mount, exposes religious hypocrisy (“they do not practice what they preach” v.3) where concern for external performance and reputation trumps real love for God and others. Jesus calls His followers to a different way of life. The desire to be exalted in the eyes of others is natural to our fallen hearts (vv.5-7), but is not to be our way (vv.8-12). My daily prayer is, “Lord, kill my pride before my pride kills me.” Perhaps, as a church, we should pray this together.

15 March Mt 23:13-24

Jesus spells out His complete rejection of hypocritical religion. It hides the way of salvation rather than making it plain (v.13) and becomes even more corrupting when it is passed on (v.15). It leads to hair-splitting folly (vv.16-22) and focuses on minutiae at the expense of weighty moral issues (vv.23-24). No wonder Jesus condemns its proponents as “blind guides” (v.24). May God preserve us from deceiving ourselves and others. Ps 139:23-4 is a suitable prayer in response.

16 March Mt 23:25-28

Washing only the outside of a cup leaves the inside dirty still. Likewise, whitewashing the outside of a tomb in no way cleans what’s inside. This, says, Jesus, is the problem with a religion that concentrates on externals: it overlooks the fact that the seat of our corruption is in the heart (vv.25-28). External ritual is powerless to bring about internal change. For that we need the transforming grace of Christ – the very thing that the Pharisees so tragically rejected. Seek that grace on your knees.

17 March Mt 23:29-36

Jesus’ final woe warns of the deceptive power of this kind of religion. The Scribes and Pharisees build monuments to past martyrs and boast that they would not have killed the prophets as their ancestors did. Yet at this very moment they are preparing to kill Jesus, and they will soon persecute His followers too. Thus they not only follow the way of their fathers; they actually bring it to its terrible climax in the murder of God’s own Son. Take heed to what is really in your heart.

18 March Mt 23:37-39

God’s long-delayed judgement on those who persecute His prophets was about to fall (vv.35-36). Yet this brings lament from Jesus, not gloating (vv.37-39). This chapter of woes arises from His heart of love, not from vengefulness. And still He offers grace to Pharisees. Was not Saul of Tarsus “a Pharisee of the Pharisees” (Ac 23:6) and the leading persecutor of Christ’s people? Yet grace was given to this “chief of sinners” so that we too might seek Christ’s mercy for our own severe failings (1Tim 1:16).
