Becoming Like Jesus, Making Disciples, Bringing Real Change
02/08/2020 6 pm
Felicity Hawke leads the service, Ann Gibbons reads Matthew chapter 14, verses 13 to 21, and Val Whiteman invites us to be one of the crowd alongside 5,000 men plus women and children as Jesus performs a miracle.
After the reading of Romans chapter 8 verses 26-39 by Gill Heath, Andrew Haines gives the talk. First, because these verses sum up all of what has gone before in this letter, he summarizes chapters 1 to 8, and then leads us through the actual verses, showing how Paul answers the four questions in them.
The second part is available via the button below. It includes Karen Mills's retelling of the passage from Luke 8:42b-48 followed by Andrew Attwood, who leads us through the story verse by verse, showing us how the Holy Spirit and Jesus work together, and asking the questions
- Do you think healing is for everyone else but not yourself?

Do you feel so insignificant that Jesus can't use you? Think about the boy who brought the loaves and the fish to Jesus. We all need each other, and we need to be different from each other to help each other and thus serve God. Lindsey Attwood leads this service, Chris Waters homes in on the 2nd part of that message (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) and Penny Bryans talks about the 1st part (John 6:5-13). Karen Jackson and Ellie Bryans read the passages,
Lindsey Attwood shares her journey of faith by exploring this unusual book of the Bible, otherwise known as the Song of Solomon - for Christians, a picture of the love of Jesus for His Church.
Lindsey, in exploring chapter 2, talks about the invitation we all have to follow Jesus, to trust Him, to come back if we slip away, to give our heart to Him, to yield to Him and thus become His disciple.
The Knights' Meadow service is normally held on Zoom, but today there was a worldwide Zoom outage.
Andrew had however pre-recorded his talk and you can see it here. Some references:
Peter walking on water: Matthew 14:22-32
Peter disagreeing with Jesus about him being killed and rising again: Mark 8:31-33
Jesus saying to Simon, Satan has asked to sift them all: Luke 22:31-34
Peter denying Jesus: Luke 22:54-62
Stoning of Stephen: Acts 7:54-60
Disciples filled with the Spirit and Peter's sermon: Acts 2:1-41
Peter and the vision of the cloth of unclean creatures: Acts 10:9-22
Andrew suggests, at this time of coronavirus lockdown: it's an opportunity to go deeper with God: be still and give God room.
The service is led by Val Whiteman (who also reads Psalm 97), the reading of Luke chapter 8, verses 1 to 3 and prayerful reflection on the talk are by Andrew Attwood, and the talk is by Lindsey Attwood.
Lindsey notes how Luke points out how important women were in supporting Jesus' ministry. Why was that, and what does that mean for our understanding of how Jesus works?
