Sermon Sunday 26 July 2020

Welcome to everyone from near and far tuning in to hear the message this Sunday morning. We are glad you are here.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
lay down, thou weary one, lay down
your head upon my breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was,
weary and worn and sad;
I found in him a resting place,
and he has made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water; thirsty one,
stoop down and drink, and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
of that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
and now I live in him.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s Light;
look unto me, your morn shall rise,
and all your days be bright.”
I looked to Jesus and I found
in him my Star, my Sun;
and in that light of life I’ll walk,
’til trav’ling days are done.

    Thank you Peter for these words of reflection. Also, today’s hymn including the words ‘the living water’ makes me think that we are actually lucky to have the types of summers we have in Ireland, Scotland, the UK- often very wet ones! They actually make everything very green and beautiful. My hope is that lockdown has made us more aware of not only how we must care for one another, but maybe more importantly our environment as well. Love to all at Newhaven from Banbrige- Dougal.
