Today we begin a short series entitled "The Space Between" in which we will explore the new normal that God is inviting us into as a community of faith. We always face changes and the journey from the old normal to the new normal can be really unsettling. It is, however, a critical journey and we need courage to press on and to resist the temptation to retreat to the old, comfortable, normal.
In this message I want to reflect on one of the fundamental invitations I believe we have been given over the course of last year - the invitation to hope.
I trust that the Holy Spirit will give you the courage to hope rather than retreat to control and certainty. May the example of Ahaz remind us of the need for hope and trust.
Is there someone you know who really needs to hear this message? Why not share it with them and see what God does through it.
If you'd like to join us online, we meet at gbconline.org.au at 9:30am AEST. We'd love for you to join us.
If you're in the area and would like to visit us physically we are about to return to face-to-face gatherings in early January. Visit our website gymeabaptist.org.au. for service times or follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
