It was absolutely wonderful, even beautiful, to have Andrew Mustapha back with us this morning. It was so moving to hear him read from 1 Corinthians 13 about love, and to hear him describe his experience in detention. Heston was also brilliant at sharing with us how God’s love is about taking us from slavery and captivity to that place of promise where we as individuals, created in God’s image, can become whole by sharing and being interdependent in the community of God’s people, that between us we have the gifts that make a body work and be at peace.
Today we shared together:
We believe in a bright and amazing God
who has been to the depths of despair on our behalf;
who has risen in splendor and majesty;
who decorates the universe with bright lights,
twinkling stars and brilliant colours,
again and again and again.
We believe that Jesus is the light of the world;
that God believes in us, and trusts us,
even though we make the same mistakes
over and over again.
We commit ourselves to Jesus,
ton one another as brothers and sisters,
and to the Maker’s good plans for the world.
God said: Let there be light.
May we be the light of the world.
