O Happy Day!

For Christians looking back to that first Easter Sunday, it is indeed a happy day! If Jesus had not died, I would still be separated from my Creator by sin. But sin has been paid for, and my Creator is now my Heavenly Father. If Jesus had not risen from the dead, He would not be helping us today. But ... Read More »

Restrictions!

Restrictions are easing, but they were not last Sunday. So the two of us had praise, worship, reading from scripture, communion, prayer – and roast pork with Sauvignon blanc. But the rules have changed, and now 6 people or 2 households can meet together. But only outside. This will soon change again, and when 6 can meet indoors, we can ... Read More »

The Temple of God!

Wendy very often opens with a psalm. Last Sunday (21st March) she read Psalm 84. I remember it from schooldays, ‘How amiable are Thy tabernacles,’ or something like that. The swallow has a home, and the sparrow, but the psalmist feels at home in the temple. Our temple today is the people of God. We miss meeting with others. We feel ... Read More »

Building a Temple!

It will be good when more of us can gather, but just the two of us here continue to enjoy praise, worship, communion, the word and prayer. Wendy had been reading from Ezra, and spoke of how temple building can be relevant in view of New Testament teaching that the Church is now the temple. She continued, reading Psalm 34. ...

Isaiah 53

Wendy and I start each day by reading just one chapter of the Bible together, and praying. Last Sunday morning, it was Isaiah 53. After breakfast, we spent time in praise, worship, prayer, communion and the word. After praise and worship, we went back to Isaiah 53, which although written around 500BC, speaks so clearly about Jesus and Calvary. In ... Read More »

More Psalms!

Here is my brief blog re our Sunday morning meeting (28th February 2021). However, since putting this together, we have heard of the passing of Tim. We are deeply saddened, and lift Ann and the family in prayer. ***** Psalms again! I love psalms, and that is probably my favourite book in the Bible. Sunday morning, we started with Wendy ...

Out of The Miry Pit!

Wendy read psalm 39, and I read psalm 92. We considered reasons to praise God – and then we did just that. Communion. Psalm 40, where we read that the Lord brought us out of a miry pit and put us on a Rock. At Calvary, He took our place, and, as it were, went into a miry pit, before ... Read More »

Let it get darker!

An advantage of church during the current restrictions, is that the time can be flexible. It was Valentine’s Day, and not only did we open our cards, but reminisced about our years together – the adventures, the memorable moments, etc. We read together, prayed and thanked the Lord for each other, and came down for breakfast. Wendy read psalm 110, ... Read More »

Jesus – in the psalms!

We met this Sunday, just the two of us, to praise, worship, have communion, and generally enjoy the presence of God. Wendy read psalm 49, which we returned to later. I read psalm 57, and noted a few things there – David was taking refuge in the cave of Adullam (a natural feature) but in his heart, trusted in God. ... Read More »

Special Bible Passages!

Last Sunday morning, we met as usual. Just two of us, because of lockdown. Wendy read psalm 1,  which is my passage for the year. If the Lord gives me a word for the year, I cannot read it too much. I (Barrie) then read psalm 42 which I had read earlier by myself. But this psalm is special for ... Read More »
