Sharing God’s Gifts
June 18, 2015
'At a time when conversation in churches is often about problems, it was good to remind ourselves of the many positive things happening and the abundant gifts God gives' Revd. Ian ReesGod’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful: (from The Message, by Eugene Peterson) St. John’s Church, Gowerton had a day to celebrate the variety of gifts and talents within their church community: 'Sharing God's Gifts'. There were displays by both organisations and individuals and, in the evening, a celebration service including some special musical contributions. In addition to the exhibition, children from the cast of the forthcoming production of Oliver performed some of the songs publically for the first time. It was a great day of celebration!
