Growing into maturity
Do you expect to be changed as you live the Christian life?
In Sunday's talk John continues to answer the question 'What is church?' by looking at Jesus' interactions with his disciples. As they walked through life with Jesus it was an experience through which they learned and grew and changed.
One of the themes running through our Lent reflections has been considering others. The gift of a new chair caused Merle to reflect upon the importance of looking past our own needs to the needs of those around us.

A surprise visit home for Mother's day caused Merle to reflect on the account of Mary and Martha in Luke 10:38-42, which the ladies had studied last week. Click the picture of the suitcase to read Merle's 2nd Lent reflection
The ladies have set aside time during this year's period of Lent to study parts of the Easter story. Merle's first Lent reflection is based upon one of the thoughts shared during a study on the miracle of Jesus walking on the water.
