Elder’s Message january 2020

On many occasions when travelling, I have either been helped or helped people, with their luggage or directions, held open a door or shared a conversation. All these can make the journey an adventure, not just a means to an end.

As we journey through our lives, we can sometimes feel we are only passing through on our way to the next big thing. Here, at Verwood Family Church, we believe the way we engage in the journey of life is as important as the end goal. We invite others, through friendship, in to both the ordinary and exceptional moments, sharing the sadness and tears, fun and laughter, finding support, comfort, reassurance and love. At the centre of our crowd stands Jesus Christ, who promises to stick by us however long, difficult, challenging or lonely that journey might be. His directions are perfect and His wisdom flawless, His love without limits.

Together the journey makes more sense, together we can encourage our fellow travellers to focus on the One who is The Way, The Truth and The Life.
