This Sunday – Basis of Union: Article XX – Of Christian Service and the Final Triumph
We have arrived at the last article of doctrine of the Basis of Union, Article XX – Of the Christian Service and the Final Triumph. The first part can be summarized as a description of what it means to live a “Christian” life. The second part is a vision for what the world can become.
In our world today, there are many self-styled “good Christians” who are making headlines for their stances on certain social issues and their attitudes to identifiable minorities. Some of you, perhaps many of you, will look at these people and say, “That’s not my idea of Christian.” So, if what can see when others are living or expressing a “Christianity’ that is different from our idea, can we express, define, or live our Christianity. And do any of these “Christianities” bear an obvious relationship to the life and teachings of Jesus?
CHILDREN IN WORSHIP
Although there is no Sunday School during the summer, children are still welcome to be present for worship. To make things a bit easier, Activity Packs are available each Sunday at the Welcome Table.
