Technology facilitates communication until it fails to work....yet again, yesterday morning, the technology I use to livestream the service didn't want to facilitate anything and so it wasn't to be. However, this, of course, didn't prevent those of us meeting in person from worshipping the Lord together and we did that with joy and thankfulness to Him who loved us and gave himself for us. We are thankful for the presence of 9 young ones with us. The sound of their voices and their presence is a wonderful encouragement for us, a reminder of the hope for the church as we move forward, and a declaration of the truth spoken by Jesus: 'Let the little ones come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these' (Matt 19.14)
The technolgy issue is sorted so we should be back to 'normal' this coming Sunday morning.
Talking of 'back to normal', as from today, the wearing of face coverings in worship is no longer mandatory. If, however, you still feel you want to do this, then you are free so to do.
There is no CBS Zoom meeting on Wednesday night this week because we are having Martin Dudgeon from Platform 67 speaking at an in person meeting on Tuesday at 7.30pm (please note the change of time from our usual 7pm start), in the Church of Scotland hall. This will be aired through Zoom using the usual access codes for the weekly meeting. Platform 67 is a missionary organisation whose aim is based on the words of Psalm 67- 'that the earth thy ways and nations all, may know thy saving grace'.
There will be a CBS in Edwin and Mary Ann's on Thursday at 2pm and a prayer meeting in the Fellowship area in Gairloch on Saturday at 7pm. All are welcome to these meetings.
