We believed you Revd Julie...

In her address this Sunday Revd Julie said that if she told us that when she came into church the other day she found a little bird sitting on the rim of the pulpit would we believe her – Well of course we would, because we know her well and we trust in her words, yet – even though the Pharisees had followed around after Jesus for at least two or three years they still didn’t trust him and they didn’t believe he was the long awaited Messiah. The Pharisees and people of the time were fortunate enough to see the amazing works of Jesus and could so easily believe and trust in him, but today, although many people would probably love to believe in Jesus, they just find it impossible to accept the Lord’s words as truth because they need proof…

Because Jesus lived in a rural and farming area, he always likened himself to a shepherd who loves and leads his sheep in the right path. Hopefully, even though we have no ‘proof’ Christian people believe and trust in the Good Shepherd who knows us by name and loves us, yet even we as faithful followers often stray away from the fold because we are too distracted by what is going on in the world around us – But, Jesus is always there in the good times and the bad, he knows us by name and he will always be with us when we need him…
