SHINE LIKE STARS
In our Easter offering dedication service we heard stories of people who made a difference to others by the lives that they led. We were reminded in the poem 'Look at the stars' that there will always be stars and there will always be God in our lives. We were invited to write on a star either the name of someone who had been a star and inspired us in our life journey, a situation that needed the light of Christ or an opportunity where we felt we could bring the light of Christ to others. The stars were displayed at the front of the church and as we prayed we were all challenged to 'Shine like stars' and bring God's light to a place of darkness.
