Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus
Well, this is it! The discussion is concluded, the decision is made, our comfortable congregation is embarking on a journey of Discipleship, at Penrallt (its Welsh, say it as you find it but learn how to get your tongue around that 'll' when you visit us). We are blessed with many very bright and highly educated folk, plus a big group of students from the nearby university, we'd value your prayers as we embark on this ticket free ride. Sadly there are a few who will unintentionally pour cold water on the burning oil of the Spirit and they may just throw a collective spanner in the works; so if you could remember them too please, we want to have their support.
There is a measure of complacency among middle class professionals that surprises me and it is to do with the apprehension of taking more on than they're already doing. I know as you do, that it's more than likely to be taking less on and pointing one's efforts more thoughtfully and being more aware of the effect of living alongside Jesus; rather than using him as a desirable add-on. But in the early phase the groundswell of opinion seems to point to that attitude. So watch this space, here we go 'God bless us everyone'.
