This week we’re continuing to reflect on the scripture behind the topics explored on Sunday morning.
Micah 6:8 NIV

I feel like I’m repeating a Government slogan here, not ‘stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives’, but, ‘act justly, love mercy, walk humbly’ – forgive me! This is not a sound-bite slogan, however, but a profound insight into what God is looking for: a people who strive for a just and fair world, taking action against oppression and standing with the downtrodden, a people who know that they are imperfect and at times the source of injustice, and a people who offer mercy to others as they rely on the mercy of God.
Spirit, help us be and become such a people.
Ps. Don’t forget to pray for and promote the Alpha Course…
