Sunday 3rd September 2023 – Fourteenth Sunday After Pentecost

REFLECTION:

24Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let

him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

This pithy verse encapsulates two aspects of being a disciple of Christ that

are the “litmus test” of being a true follower of Jesus. They are denial of self

and the taking up of your cross and following after Christ. Both of these

aspects can be glibly answered in the affirmative but actually living out

there true meaning is much harder to do.

Today we will explore these prerequisites of being a disciple of Jesus.





HYMNS

TIS 133 O worship the King

MP 456 Make me a channel of your Peace

MP 31 Amazing Grace

HAPPY FATHERS DAY

A sturdy, steady hand to hold to, in times of strife and

stress. A true friend we can turn to when times are good

and bad. One of our greatest gifts & blessings, the man

that we call DAD.








DISCIPLESHIP EXPLORED STARTED ON THE 30TH OF

AUGUST

The word “disciple” means “follower” or “learner.” A disciple of Jesus isn’t

some kind of super-Christian. In fact, Jesus assumes that all of his followers

are disciples. Over the next eight weeks, we’ll be exploring a letter written

to some of the earliest Christian disciples by one of the earliest Christian

leaders: Paul. He was in chains at the time, guarded day and night by a

Roman soldier – and yet, as he keeps telling them, he’s overflowing with

joy. We’ll discover why every Wednesday (7:30-9pm) in the Fellowship

Room.



INTERACTIVE SESSIONS ON FORGIVENESS

Join us for a series of interactive sessions on forgiveness on Wednesday

nights 7:30-9pm, in the fellowship room.
