Eaton Ford - The right amount

< 22nd January 2007 | Index | 7th March 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

Rachael read Proverbs 27:7 and commented that Father gives us just the right amount as we need it. Val reminded us that when a believer is full of the real good things, there is actually no room for the worldly things.

Rugby - Straight and narrow

< 17th January 2007 | Index | 29th January 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

During the meeting we chatted over coffee for a while, and then we looked at the passage of Isaiah Rachael and I had prepared (Isaiah 40:3-5). We read it through together and I shared what I had thought. Rachael said that she saw a relation between 'making the way straight' and the explosions all in a straight line that she'd seen in a dream.

We agreed that our role in the world is to proclaim the Kingdom of Heaven, to declare Christ to the world, to live lives that reveal his glory.

Eaton Ford - Table and TV

< 27th September 2006 | Index | 22nd January 2007 >

Only brief notes were taken this week.

A 1950s TV setSometimes it's necessary in our lives to clear the decks. Rachael shared a picture of a table with everything swept off, all the clutter of tablecloth and crumbs and used plates was removed in a single action. This reminded us of John the Baptist's cry in the wilderness, to 'make straight the way'. Although the world's in such a mess at the moment, it will be made good. This is the Lord's responsibility; he will do it.

Rachael also thought that being in the world is rather like watching television in black and white. When we see the full colour of the heavenly reality it will be utterly fantastic!
