Once again the church, or is it God in some people’s minds, was brought into disrepute this week as we read and heard of a pastor whose bill for one night in a club amounted to R1.3 million. Remember that Jesus was accused of being a drunkard and a glutton because he was often at people’s homes during a meal. And this weekend’s Gospel of the first miracle which Jesus performed publicly , i.e. turning water into wine , may confirm this accusation that the church leaders levelled against Jesus. However, we need to remember that there is a vast chasm of difference between the pastor’s focus, intention and behaviour and Jesus’s and on what constitutes a “good time”! For Jesus , it always seems to be about building relationships with people in such a way that their relationship with God is grown and deepened. What does a “good time” in your life reveal to others about God?
We look forward to sharing in a good time together in mutual fellowship and communal Eucharist on Sunday at 8.30 am whether online or in-person.
