Our May “Second Sunday” was everything: colourful, quiet, musical, tasty and creative. Thank you so much to Rosanna, Jon and Hester, and others who helped to make it such a wonderful time of creative worship together as a community.
We painted African masks, baked (extremely good) Australian biscuits, and made colourful and very effective drums to use when we joined up together again to worship God in song.
Worship isn’t just about singing or hearing a sermon. It’s part of our lives as Christians, and we worship God by helping others, by thinking about more than ourselves. This Second Sunday reminded us about the sheer variety of God’s creation and the different people and cultures throughout the world.
And we had two opportunities to help people who have difficult lives, and those who devote their lives to helping them. We bought good from the Fair Trade Stall – beautifully-made crafts, and good food, from poor farmers whose lives are improved by the Fair Trade Foundation. And we gave the service collection to Mission Aviation Fellowship, whose pilots fly charity workers and medical supplies into poor and remote areas in Uganda and elsewhere.
