The weather outside is cold and wintery. Yet we come together this morning to share warm fellowship with one another and our amazing God. What a blessing this is, that we can share in this way, supporting and encouraging one another in our daily walk with our Lord and Saviour. We are at the same time reminded that this is not the case for all in our city this morning, and are encouraged to be alert to the opportunities to share the love of God with those who are finding the going tough – the lonely, the homeless, the sick, the destitute and those who are grieving. May the warmth we experience together extend to those in need that they too may share in the blessings God has for all his people.
