Where Real Fulfilment Lies (March 2020)

How often do we hear people say they have decided to do something to change their life, because it is what they believe will bring them fulfilment?  The thinking goes, that in order to find true happiness, there is something about each of us that we need to find.  And if we choose things in life which do not ‘fit’ then we will be unhappy.  There is some real truth in that.  But, it is far from being the whole truth. 


As I write we are two weeks into our new service pattern. First, a huge thank you to everyone who is getting up half an hour earlier, particularly as we are in the darkest and most miserable time of year. Working on a blank canvas to help design our new 11.30 service has got me thinking – what is worship? When Jesus met the Samaritan woman at the well he told her that ‘true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth’ (John 4:23). Sounds good, but what does worship in spirit and truth look like? Really? Do we have to dance in our underwear like king David (2 Sam 6:14-22)?


It is traditional at the New Year to make a resolution to change away from bad habits, or to improve our lifestyle to be healthier.  How about starting 2020 with a resolution to improve the health of your faith?  To do that, we need to do a ‘faith health check’.  We need to go back to basics, to God with us, born as a baby in a manger.
