Sunday worship 26th August 2018

Led By Rev. Liz Maitland

Liz is the Chaplain for a Hospice Chaplaincy linked through Tapton for the Congregational Federation.

Readings Romans 8:12-17  &  John 3:1-17

We join Nicodemus and Jesus Christ having a heart to heart conversation.  The reference to darkness in John relates to not knowing and complication.

Nicodemus asks a question but after the conversation was it any clearer to him?

WE are faced with many questions that do not have an answer.  Why has it happened? What’s my life meant? What happens when I die?

Was Nicodemus testing a theory that Jesus was from God, wanting to know the mystery of miracles. How did he understand being ‘born again’?

God loves us like a parent and a new born child.  Abba Father, we are children of God.  Nicodemus was asking if God was happy with the direction he was taking?

We can all continuously wrestle with questions but not arrive in any place of certainty.
