Today's service was by Rev Jim Carson
The service was opened by Emily who then handed over to Jim
He then asked Leslie Anne to join him and the lesson was to teach the children the ease at which lies could escalate and become part of our daily lives.
They acted out a scenario where the teacher Mrs Knowitall gave the student , Dontwantto, a task to write out a one page lesson.
She then left the classroom and Dontwantto decided that instead of doing the task he was given he would try and play the piano.
On her return the teacher asked him if he had been playing the piano to which he answered "No"
She then asked if he had done his work to which he answered "Yes".
She looked in his book to discover that he had in fact done nothing.
"Why do we tell lies ?" was the question that was posed to congregation.
The answer given was "to get out of trouble"
But is that the right thing to do ? Because then we begin telling more and more lies as part of our dail;y lives and eventually people will not trust us or be prepared to leave us alone to do things on our own. Also they will always question whether the things we say are true.
But is this what God want of us ?
Jim then proceeded with his sermon which was from Philippians 1: 1-8
The key things we should always keep foremost in our minds are That what we do is
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
