Our Worship Leaders from within our own congregation led our morning service.
Within the Methodist Church Worship Leaders are not permitted to bring a Sermon, but led our thoughts around being set free from the Old laws because of Jesus. Taking inspiration from Galatians, where Paul contrasts life before and after Christ. In the former, the Law was like someone who watched over us and kept us in check. But now we are all equal heirs and children of God – whatever our social status – and free to live the life of faith.
