Sound bites from the Bible

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”

John 13:34

Verse 35 goes on to say, “All men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” Jesus was clearly instructing His disciples to care for each other and that their love for each other should shine through. We as Christians should do the same; wouldn’t the world be a wonderful place if we did?

Mother's Union collection for Ukraine

On behalf of Holy Trinity Mother's Union, I would like to thank all members and friends for the tremendous amount of help and dedication in receiving and transporting the incredible amount of donations received for the Ukrainian Appeal. I would especially like to mention Rebecca Nickson, her family and friends, who provided a "Luton" van and other transport to enable us to get the Church cleared on Monday morning. Thank you to Mark, who drove the van and everyone who went over to Lostock Hall and some who had to return and go again the next day. I should also like to thank everyone who offered transport that was not needed, and thanks to Brian, who provided us with pies for lunch on Friday and who vacuumed up after everything had gone.

It was an incredible effort by all concerned, and we hope it will give some comfort to those who have had to leave their homes and all their possessions behind.

A special mention should be made of Freckleton C of E Primary School, who held a non-uniform day and raised the amazing amount of £600.00. This will be passed to International Aid Trust and go towards the cost of transporting the donations to Moldova

Many thanks for all your help and support

Sound bites from the Bible

Luke 18:15-17

People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them.  When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them.  But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

This text is often quoted at baptisms and at other services where the intention is to make children welcome, but there is a much deeper meaning involved.  Are we to suppose that the kingdom of heaven will consist of nothing but children?  Of course not.  Jesus’ meaning here is that just as a little child trusts completely in its parent for all its needs, shelter food and love, so we must trust completely in the Father for all our needs.  If we did this how much simpler would our lives be?  Stress would become a thing of the past, the need for money to “keep up with the Joneses wouldn’t exist and loving one another as our Father loves us would take the I out of the word sin.

The passage finishes with verse 17: I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never receive it. Will you put your trust in the Lord.
