MINISTER'S MESSAGE
GREETINGS FROM REV IRIS 
 
Dear Living Faith Uniting Church Family and Friends

"...they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions." Luke 2:46


The structure above is the Southern Wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Jesus walked these very steps on many occasions. It is a remarkable moment to behold a place where Jesus actually stood. The Western Wall (previously known as the Wailing Wall) is situated around the corner. I remember standing at the Western Wall with my hands up against the rocks praying for Living Faith Uniting Church. 
 

Land-of-the-Bible writer Hopersberger, says that Neil Armstrong visited the Southern Steps and said, “I am more excited stepping on these stones than I was stepping on the moon.” The exciting thing is that we don't need to go to Jerusalem to walk in Jesus' shoes. He enables us to follow Him, to walk in His ways and to tread bravely through life as He lives within us! What step of courage is He calling you to take today? 

***FREE EKKA STRAWBERRY SUNDAES*** are coming up on Sunday 27 September after the service. Enjoy this token of gratitude for all your support towards the church and God's Kingdom during this lockdown season. 

If you have not yet attended our in-person services, please feel free to join us this Sunday. It is a different set-up but the same loving God and family who surround us.
