Open Air Church. St Anne's. St James. Revelation chapter one. The mighty Saviour. Ice creams. Covid recovery. Sunshine. Lots of chat. Kids running around. To God be the Glory.
Here is part of the passage from Revelation 1 that Jacob spoke from as we focussed on the living reigning Lord Jesus:
10 On the Lord's day the Spirit took control of me, and I heard a loud voice, that sounded like a trumpet, speaking behind me. 11 It said, “Write down what you see, and send the book to the churches in these seven cities: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.”12 I turned around to see who was talking to me, and I saw seven gold lampstands, 13 and among them there was what looked like a human being, wearing a robe that reached to his feet, and a gold band around his chest. 14 His hair was white as wool, or as snow, and his eyes blazed like fire; 15 his feet shone like brass that has been refined and polished, and his voice sounded like a roaring waterfall. 16 He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came out of his mouth. His face was as bright as the midday sun. 17 When I saw him, I fell down at his feet like a dead man. He placed his right hand on me and said, “Don't be afraid! I am the first and the last. 18 I am the living one! I was dead, but now I am alive forever and ever. I have authority over death and the world of the dead. 19 Write, then, the things you see

It was good to have the second year Southwark curates with us for a day in Bermondsey today, focussing on estates ministry, hearing about the national estates ministry strategy, having a tour of part of the parish and hearing about some of the things we are doing here to reach out with the Gospel to our local communities.
