Greetings everyone! It has been great to have a reprieve from some of those cold days and to enjoy the best winter has to offer. In yesterday's sermon I considered a couple of challenging passages. One from the book of Jonah and the other from a letter of Paul to the early church. In both passages "Warnings" were issued. This, combined with the recent false warning issued in Hawaii, caused me to reflect upon how one responds to warnings in our own lives. There are many different responses which we considered in the sermon. The passages suggest that three characteristics might help us in the midst of warnings - to act with hope; to pursue love and to persevere. How do you approach warning signs? What is the role of your faith when confronted with a crisis? I'm looking forward to the conversation.
