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

"...I was delivered from the lion's mouth." 2 Timothy 4:7 NIV

The photo of the lion above was taken in the Massia Mara Reserve in Kenya and sent in by Charlie and Leonie. This Queen of the Jungle reminds us of the overpowering nature of some of the burdens we face in life. Last Sunday we heard about overcoming situations where the odds are against us. In the heat of the struggle, it's hard to imagine how we can be rescued from adversity. Yet the Bible verse above roars truth about God's nature of deliverance - He is able to save us from the most treacherous of situations. 

He does this best when we follow His pathway through pain in obedience and humility. There is a right way and a right time to do everything. Our own ways can often lead to broken relationships or emotional strife, but God's way of forgiveness, long-suffering, self-control and surrender, will get us further as we walk out of the lion's den. Why not surrender your circumstances to God in this moment and wait for his gentle whisper to guide you through to the other side?


Please see below the links to register to attend either (or both) the Christmas Eve or Christmas Day service this year. 

We also want to highlight that our downstairs Training Room is now fully air-conditioned and ready for hire. If you are in need of a venue or know of others seeking a suitable venue for an event, please get in touch with myself or anyone on Church Council for more information. 

Go out in the coming week knowing that the Lion of Judah goes with you! 


Your friend,
Iris
