Tomorrow morning (11am) in Fitzroy we will be commissioning our summer missions folk. We have over 30 in the congregation, youth and adults heading off to do mission somewhere in our world. 17 are off to Uganda on July 3rd.
To send them off we are doing a special service where the Sounds Good Orchestra comes together again. Whatever your musical instrument or indeed ability all Fitzrers were invited to join the jamboree and Chris Blake's genius will make them sound amazing after an hour's rehearsal in the morning.
I will be thinking of God's gift of grace and then also the gifts the Spirit has given us. They are not gifts to be left on the shelf. We will be looking at Moses and how God dared him to do something dangerous and world transforming. Expect the throwing of many sweeties and a reference to a Burning Bush!
We look forward to a great crowd of American visitors with us too!
Remember... no evening events until September. A Tribute to the late great Rich Mullins is in the planning for September 17th, two days before we commemorate 20 years since his tragic passing from us. Get it in the diary now!
