Today I led the service at GMC. The service really hummed and flowed really well. The theme was "How do we live in the Spirit?" and I hope that the people that attended this morning were both comforted and challenged in some way. Feedback has been positive so far. A couple of learning points to note, practice reading aloud the prayers beforehand in order to note the natural breaks. Thank you Sara for that. Carol felt that the sermon was strongly grounded in the Bible which is a positive but I need to make sure that the language does not get any stronger or too academic for fear of losing some of the congregation. She said that the balance today was correct - so that is good news. Thanks as ever to the worship group who did an absolutely fabulous job If anyone reads this who would like to hear the sermon it will be on the following link
