Dear West View family
Welcome to worship on this Confirmation Sunday!
At this evening’s service, we’ll be welcoming over 20 young men and women into adult membership of West View. Please join me in praying for those being confirmed. Who knows what road lies ahead of each young man or woman? What we do know is that the God who created them and who died for them will be with them each step that they take into the future. May they live in the wisdom, love and grace of the God revealed to us in Jesus Christ.
On Thursday evening, I’ll be heading over to Duke Divinity School, where I’ll be interviewing students who have applied to do their ‘summer’ placements in South Africa. I’ll also be preaching at the weekly Divinity School Chapel Service, and leading a workshop for the students on Ministering Cross-culturally. The diversity that characterises South Africa is increasingly a global reality, and it will be good to reflect with the students on what it means to live out the gospel truth that “there is neither Jew nor Greek… for we are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28)
Grace and Peace
