Questions and Answers…

Do you know the answer?

Do you know the answer?

I am sure you will be delighted to know that the quiz night held on Friday 15th March raised in excess of £400, which was a great result. And talking about quizzes, Revd Carolyn said how, although she wasn’t that good at quizzes, she rather enjoys the programme on television called ‘The Chase’ mainly because she tends to know some of the answers and you get choices which makes the whole guessing game easier. When she knows an answer, she wants to shout it out to the contestants on TV, but of course they cannot hear her and they are oblivious to her shouts, rather like we are with our parents, and of course with God.

God always calls us but like the contestants on the TV, we too can be oblivious to his call and his love for us. God will not force us to listen to his words, which is one of the reasons church attendances are declining as many must feel that there are more important things to do on a Sunday than join with other Christians to worship God. After all, nothing about our religion is certain, and these days people like to know that the replies to their questions are right! But, those of us with a strong faith, can come together and find peace and comfort through prayer and praise. God is a light in our darkness and holds us steady through the ups and downs in life. We may not always be there but God is!
