Joseph Nockels came to talk to us about time he spent with a group of young people from CWM (Congregational world mission)in the Netherlands with a pioneering church called Kerk oP De Kop – translated as Church on its head – based on traditional David Livingstone but trying to be outgoing and suiting the needs of those outside the building. Rotterdam is rebuilding in the ashes left after the war and the church is rebuilding too. A church is not necessarily a building – a church is where God is and people worship Him.
This was a very informative talk – well presented.

Readings : Jeremiah 18 1-7 The potter
Ephesians 2 1-10 Death to life.
God is the Potter the artist
Has Jesus changed us?
We are God’s handiwork, his masterpiece. He works with what he has – he can refashion
A masterpiece is created by the artist not the sitter
Will you let God make you into a masterpiece?? Will you be pliable so he can mould you or will you be hard and make it difficult?? Do you care enough to want to let God change you?
“Create in me a clean clean heart
Create in me a work of art
Create in me a miracle
Something real that you can feel.”
