Worship at Dunnottar 8th September

8th September 2019

This week the service was led by our locum preacher Dr Ibi Daramola and accompanied by organist Dr Albert Bil. Ibi’s leading question to the young people was whether they had ever broken anything and there were various nods of agreement from them, revealing various broken limbs and (reluctantly admitted) mum’s precious ornament. This question then led to discussing the New Testament reading which was the letter from Paul to Philemon and the question of relationships breaking down. Paul had befriended Philemon’s runaway servant in prison and through that friendship had brought the servant Onesimus to Christ. His letter encouraged Philemon to welcome back Onesimus, not as a servant but on an equal footing as a brother in Christ. In these challenging times, when feelings run high, it can become easy to forget our relationship with God is ensured through His Amazing Grace. Through God’s grace we can then reach out to others and our actions become a representation of God’s love for everyone.

We may be different in various ways in terms of social, professional academic status, but the ground at the cross is levelled.

Next Sunday, 15th September the service will be at South at the usual time of 10.30am.

Wednesday 10th Rainbow Whist at St Bridget’s from 2-4pm.

Thursday 11th Friendship Coffee at St Bridget’s from 10-11.30am. Craft Group resumes this week in the South conservatory from 2-4pm.
