The Beauty and the Danger

Uplifting hymns played by our excellent guest pianist, Sarah Saunders, greatly enhanced today’s service led by Ian Wilson.

A lovely air of celebration was generated as Kids’ Praise made a welcome return after the summer recess. Off to an enthusiastic start, the young people have already enjoyed a treasure hunt and barbecue. They clearly enjoyed recounting their adventures and activities, which were then incorporated into Ian’s account of Abraham and Sarah’s enjoyment of sharing food in company of special visitors.

Our sermon today, intriguingly entitled ‘The Beauty and the Danger’ related to the messages contained in Deuteronomy 4 and Mark 7, where we are exhorted to follow the commandments without attempting to alter them. The Jews have always been very proud of their traditions which honour God, just as there are traditions in every church which enhance the beauty of service to God – However there is a caveat which is that tradition can become lost in itself, losing the very reason for its purpose. We do need to be careful not to hold onto tradition just for its own sake but to consider its relevance and be prepared to redefine it.
