Fan the Flame began last night with a fantastic evening about 'Baptism and Grace.' Part one of four - act one of a four act play.
One of the points that Tim made last night really rang true for me - that at my baptism, and indeed every day, those words of God's at Jesus' baptism ('You are my child, my beloved, with you I am well pleased') are spoken even to me. I am a child of God. I am beloved (a very intimate term) and he is well pleased even with me... That's the starting point. As soon as we get that - nothing else actually matters...
50 people were there last night despite the rain and depsite it being Bank Holiday Monday!!!
If you got things from last night, don't thank me or Tim, but tell others and encourage them to come so they don't miss
If you missed last night for whatever reason, I hope that you can come tonight to ensure that you are part of a week that will offer us all the chance to have our faith renewed, and to be part of something that may change the landsscape of our church forever!
See you tonight!
