Wednesday Worship 5th May – led by Mr Darryl Lomas

Readings Ezekiel 34:1-6 & Matthew 27:11-31

What makes a good or bad leader?

Darryl reflected on the position in which Pontius Pilate found himself within the Roman Empire.

He was a minor leader not a ‘mover and shaker’ in the backwater Province of Judea. He wasnt enamoured by the country people or culture. The Romans respected the religions of the nations they conquered but not Pialtae.

He was obstinate turning a deaf ear to what he didn’t want to hear and had no moral fibre submitting when threatened to let Jesus go or Caesar would be informed.

Have we saved face by running others down. Pilate certainly passed the buck and offered the crowd a choice

.What is our responsibility as individuals? Are we role models?

Sometimes we just don’t know who is being influenced by our actions.
