Praise, grief, worship, prayer, celebration….
How do you handle a meeting when there is national grief, a new monarch, a new prime minister, unprecedented cost of living increases, major war in Europe, etc? Answer – take it to the Lord and ask the Holy Spirit to lead. Same as always.
We raised the roof with praise to our God, and then had silence to reflect on the goodness of God in giving us HM Queen Elizabeth ll for 70 years. We prayed praise prayers, and then prayed for HM Charles lll and Liz Truss.
There were so many testimonies, and then Malcolm led communion with more testimony. There was prayer for Michelle’s family, going through such a difficult time, and Billy and Wendy re accommodation.
We looked at Deuteronomy 17, and the Lords requirements of a king. We applied them to Charles, and to ourselves.
Cliff closed in prayer.
Next Sunday, Jonathan and Paige Squirrell will be with us, and there will be a Liberty Lunch afterwards, to which all are invited.
