God welcomes weeds into the garden of His church and acceptance and the addition of the Holy Spirit, plenty of love, prayer, Bible Study, protection, and continual support and nurture, weeds in God’s garden become the wonderful blossoms that draw others to them to find out what changed them.


Lent is the time to nurture the weeds that we are to enable us to blossom for God at Easter.

LAST WORD SUNDAY OCTOBER 15th.

THE WEDDING BANQUET


We have all received our invitations to God’s Wedding Banquet in His Kingdom. Are we excited? Are we looking forward to it? Are we making preparations and considering what would be an appropriate gift? Are we making efforts with our appearance?


   Some who have received an invitation are not at all happy about it. They have given their excuses just like the people in the Gospel story. We know of those too who violently reject God’s invitation and seek to destroy His messengers.


   Perhaps we identify ourselves with those in the story from the highways and byways who have accepted God’s invitation. Certainly, the church today recognizes the need to make everyone welcome no matter who they are or however ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and are encouraged to bring others with them.

 

    If we are these people, is it enough that we have accepted our invitations? Apparently not!


 What do I mean? In the story, there was one person inappropriately dressed and was thrown out of the banquet! Does that mean we have to be careful what we wear to church? Not at all! The meaning behind this is that it is not enough just to accept God’s invitation, we are expected to make proper preparation for the time we will enter the feast. That involves altering attitudes and our ways of behaviour to reflect the teachings of Jesus and to represent Him as His disciples today.


    Acceptance requires change and changing means we will have the most appropriate gift to offer The Lord. What is that gift? It is of course ourselves adorned in the love received from God and shared with many others.


Many blessings,

Marian, S.C.L.


 

Mothers Union Our next meeting is on Tuesday 17th October at 2:15pm in the Parish Centre.  Our speaker is Sue Thomas (of the R.N.I.B.) and the talk will  be on Visual Awareness.   This will be the last  chance for members to put their names down for the Christmas Lunch at this meeting so if you want to come please give me your name.        Iris.


The Chutney Chums are grateful to everyone from St Paul’s and Holy Trinity – (and elsewhere!) who bought apple chutney this year. We are able to send £88 to the orphanage in Africa whose choir assisted in our worship on Good Shepherd Sunday.  Viv.
