Text word: Mark 5: 41-42, ‘then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.’
Evangelist Heynes acknowledged that we appreciate life itself is a gift and we are reminded to take care of our own physical bodies, by eating well and ensuring we get enough exercise.
Spiritual well-being is also our priority and we should remember we are Children of God and we should contemplate our eternal life. How can we stay strong?
Our congregation experiences great joy when a new baby is born is baptised. We too, can have much celebration that souls in eternity are welcomed and redeemed, especially on days like today.
Let us place our trust in our heavenly Father. When we act out of faith, we will experience His help. Where we extend love, warmth and welcome to other souls, this creates a family atmosphere in the congregation and this kindness is a visible faith.
Priest Paisley assisted, and the congregation enjoyed some time together in fellowship.
