Tonight our usual mid week meetings were not on due to our supper evening in Cumbernauld. A good number of us gathered, including a few visitors. We began with a buffet of savoury and sweet foods followed by tea and coffee. This was followed by a short service in our coffee shop.
We had a short time of singing, a very good testimony from Marianne and two singing items. Carol then brought a very clear and lovely word from the book of Hosea. She spoke of the representation in this book of the love in the Father heart of God to an unfaithful people. She brought a message of hope, that no matter what our situation, we can come to God just as we are and know his forgiveness and restoration. We closed in prayer and there was a beautiful sense of the peace of Christ with us. It was a very good evening where folks were able to relax and feel at home in the presence of God.
