PRESBYTER'S RAMBLINGS JULY

CONSIDERATION.

Recently I  witnessed my first expression of Road Rage, or to be exact, Footpath Rage!  A jogger furiously – if ineffectually – kicking his sandshoes against the door of a sports car.  The driver on her cell phone had not noticed the man she had almost run over.   Technology is a wonderful aid to living.  It keeps us in instant contact,  but can cut us off at the same time, rendering us ignorant of our surroundings and other folk. 

A problem I see for our society is that we are increasingly being cut off from each other so will a pandemic bring out the same community of caring as occurred in 1918? 

God's calling  to we humans is to be in community… the call is that our church communities mirror God's plan for all humanity.

It behoves us, then, to mirror His love, power and presence in our relationship, both within our Church "family" and outwardly to all we meet.                                                                        

 Bill Elderton.
