Wellington Record – December 2017

Welcome to the Winter edition of our church magazine.

Another summer has passed and many are looking forward to spending time with family and friends over Christmas and New Year.

Do you ever pause and look back over the year that has almost gone? Do you wonder if you have made a difference in someone’s life? Did you go out of your way to help someone in need? As we journey through life, we can become so caught up with the demands of modern day living that we have little or no time for others. Maybe we should pause, take stock and ask ourselves what is really important to us.

In Micah 6 v 8 we read, “And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

You can’t fail to be moved by the words of Lauren Agnew as she tells us of IJM’s work on pages 12 & 13. To realise that millions in our world live in slavery at the hands of evil and unscrupulous people seems almost unbelievable in the 21st Century! Surely William Wilberforce’s efforts led to the abolition of slavery 1833!

What better time of the year to sit down and consider our attitudes to others and how we might develop lives full of justice, mercy and compassion.

This is, after all, what the Lord requires of us!
