“X” MARKS THE SPOT! - A message from the Rural Dean

A schoolboy aged 6 once came home mystified by a WebSite X5 Demo Version His mother explained that it meant he had got the sum wrong. At the age of 13 he came home in tears from WebSite X5 Demo Version tter from a girl with an X at the bottom. “What have I done wrong?” he sobbed. “I think it’s a kiss,” his moth WebSite X5 Demo Version she loves you.” At eighteen he was confused to receive a card asking him to put an X against someone’s name. “Does WebSite X5 Demo Version in love?” His Dad put him right. “He’s asking for your vote in the election, silly!”

Jesus told us that His death on the WebSite X5 Demo Version hings. Naturally we are out of step and out of relationship with God because so many of the things that come out of our hearts WebSite X5 Demo Version who is totally pure – just as things we do might be displeasing to others, who have certain standards. So we are in the wrong with WebSite X5

Demo Version istancing Himself, God came to find us and bring us back to Himself at the infinite cost of the life of His Son, Jesus. He came to give Hi WebSite X5 Demo Version ny (Mark 10:45).  

And finally, He invited us to follow Him, which He said meant taking up our cross, even to death. This means that we are WebSite X5 Demo Version ance to Christ. He asks for our vote, as it were, our decision, to trust and follow Him. So the events of Good Friday are very pertinent today. As a re WebSite X5 Demo Version r us on the cross, we can be restored into a personal relationship with God, that is not just for now, but also for eternity – because this same Jesus did not WebSite X5 Demo Version gain and defeated death. This is a well attested fact which Christians celebrate each Sunday in particular and on Easter Sunday above all.  

So please do come an WebSite X5 Demo Version y of our Easter events and services.
