Worship on 5th Sunday

5 Sundays in July this year so our 5th Sunday service was at St Bridget’s and with the wonderful Ray (of sunshine) leading praise on piano, it was Ian who led our thought-provoking service this week.

We were given an early workout with an action hymn starting worship. Thank goodness it was only the chorus which needed actions or we would have needed a wee lie down in order to continue!

‘I am the church, you are the church, we are the church together’ was the title of the opening hymn which introduced the key message for this stimulating service.

In prayer, Ian encouraged us to dwell on both God’s message and our own positive effect on others being like pebbles being thrown into water with the rippling effect these cause. Reaching out is so important!

We read from 2Kings 4 from the Old Testament and also from the New Testament John 6 about God’s promise to feed everyone with enough to spare. Unusually, the reading about the loaves and fishes was read in Doric -North East Scots, however we think there was enough English there for everyone to understand!

The reading from John 6 is one of only two mentions in all the gospels of Jesus being THE prophet and there were seven signs of this including changing water into wine, the blind being enabled to see, the lame being able to walk, and the dead being brought to life, with finally the sacrificial death and rising of THE prophet.
