Welcome to Derriford Church Blog

Editorial

Paul reminds us in Colossians 3:15 to always be thankful and this is indeed true for us here at Derriford.
We have had a busy Christmas period with many exciting and vibrant services of all kinds to reflect on. Lunch Club catered for 60 elderly people who enjoyed a three course meal interspersed with carols and readings led by Stuart, followed by Snow White in all “her” glory. Messy Church on Christmas Eve was busy with 50 young people engaged in various different types of craft followed by a Christingle service and a party. The more traditional services with carols at Tamar House, Carols by Candlelight, Midnight Communion and a family service on Christmas Day itself were well supported. Through all of these, we were able to share the love, joy and peace that God brings through the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ. Christmas Day also involved a meal together when 19 people came; this demonstrated our desire to care for each other. Overall this was a wonderful time to share the Good News of Christmas with everyone.
Furthermore, last week, over 130 people supported Stuart when he led worship for the last time before the whole family moves up to Salford. This emphasised the depth of work that he and Helen have brought to this community. A prepared lunch for 92 followed and everyone had an opportunity to express their thanks for 8 years of spiritual growth.
All of this would not have been possible without the work of the Holy Spirit and to those people dedicated to sharing their time and energy for all of these events to take place. A very big THANK YOU! I pray that this continues with God at the centre of all that we do. As He continues to guide us, may remain attentive and obedient to His will.
It is right for us to celebrate and all of these activities are testament to the commitment of God’s people in this church. We should celebrate and be thankful for the vision of bringing such people to Christ.

….AND FORGIVE US OUR CHRISTMASES

The Autumn sales had ended. There followed an appearance of greeting cards in the shops, imitation holly and cotton-wool snow in the centrally heated departmental stores, plastic robins on the check-out registers of the supermarkets, and double – page adverts for wines, spirits, jewellery, toys,TV’s, and so on, in the colour supplements of the Sunday newspapers. The people began to prepare for the coming feast. Thinking, for their lunch, of chickens, turkeys, geese, joints of meat, boiled and roast potatoes, peas, sprouts, gravy and sauce, with pudding and custard, plus mince-pies and cream to follow. Thinking, for their tea, of salads, with sausage rolls and slices of cold meat and pickles, fancy pastries, tinned or fresh fruit topped with condensed milk,and followed by a wedge of iced cake. Thinking, for the evening, of sweets and chocolates, nuts, fruit in the dried or candied form, and in particular the variety of spirits, wines, beers, and sugar-filled soft drinks. And the shop owners, realising that there was much money in the pockets of the people at this time, put up the prices of their goods. But the people were not to be deterred from buying presents for relatives they did not really love, for friends they did not particularly like, and for colleagues they simply loathed. So they crowded the counters, snatching cards from each other, and pushing each other in their attempts to grasp for the goods — and nearly all the time the little children cried. As the day itself approached, the voices of the seasonal singers were drowned by both the noise of the traffic and the shouts from the fairgrounds; and the sermons of thousands of ministers echoed in many poorly attended churches. Now it came to pass that a certain woman, heavy with child, had wandered far, seeking both a place to lay and a people to welcome her delivery. But no rooms were available and, in any case,the people were not looking for any birth for they were glued to their colour tellies watching the ‘soaps’. And, as they poured themselves another drink, lit another cigar, cut another slice of cold meat, undid yet one more button, and wished each other the compliments of the season, a few did in fact wonder where the faint cries of a newly-born hungry child were coming from..

Editorial

We are asked in two secular songs, one by Irving Berlin and a second more recently by Ellie Goulding, ‘How much do I love you?’ In them, they try to answer by comparing it to the depth of the ocean, the height of the sky or as long as stars are above you. How does this compare with God’s love for us? Paul in his letter to the Romans is absolutely certain: ‘And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries for tomorrow – not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord’. (Romans 8:38-39). What a promise this is! Remember this, as we settle down to enjoy this Christmastime and rejoice together in the birth of our Saviour. Each of us can receive the greatest gift of all – God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ! All we have to do is to ask. Then, in the words of the carol; “And our eyes at last shall see Him, Through His own redeeming love”.

Article – REVELATION FROM GOD – Ray Gerry

REVELATION FROM GOD

In Luke 1 we see that an angel is sent by God to speak to a virgin called Mary. What is clear from this is that we have a speaking God — and, when He is speaking to Mary, He’s actually speaking words of prophecy, i.e. things that would come true! God, of course, is still speaking ‘words’ today –to us, His people, but we need to be in a place where we can receive those ‘words’ in a very fresh, new, and living way. And it’s not so much that we should go and give those words of revelation to others, but that OUR ways of living may be changed for the better. Now the place we need to be in, so that we can receive ‘words’ from God, is a place of SPIRITUAL VIRGINITY, a place of HUMILITY, and a place of SUBMISSION and OBEDIENCE to God. Mary must have been in that place.! Why else would she have been told that she was ‘highly favoured’? I must confess that I long to be in that place where I am so ‘highly favoured’ by God that He comes and speaks to me about a special assignment that He wishes me to carry out. What about you — is that your longing as well?

Article – BEING REALISTIC – Ray Gerry

BEING REALISTIC
It’s good to be passionate about God, but we need to be realistic about life. Not every day will be filled with ‘ unbroken sunshine’.–because, as we all know, the life of faith has its downs’ as well as its ups’. Nevertheless we need to believe that, even in the most difficult of circumstances and when everything seems to be going wrong, God HIMSELF will sustain us, which means that we will not only enjoy HIS presence, but we will also know HIS protection upon our lives—providing, of course, we are living in HIS will.!! That, surely, is one of the privileges of being a Christian.

Today, the 2nd Sunday in Advent, I’d like to offer you some words and verses to reflect on as we continue our Advent countdown to Christmas.
A Anticipating an Amazing Arrival Luke 1: 28-32 Gabriel’s visit and announcement to Mary
D from the line of David a Divine Deliverer
Luke 1: 32 and 1 John 4: 14 “The Father has sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world.”
V a Vulnerable baby bringing Victory over sin and Vanquishing death 1Cor. 15: 56, 57 “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
E Emmanuel! An Event changing the Earth once for all Isaiah 7: 14 and Hebrews 10: 10 “And by God,s will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”
N News of the Nativity means God is Near Luke 2: 11 “Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.”
T The Truth in a Tiny body, Turning the world Topsy-Turvy John 1: 14 The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. John 14: 6 Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Every Blessing,

Waiting can be frustrating and hard at times, particularly if you are waiting for something exciting or even something not so nice. Waiting can be God’s way of teaching us to rely on him more, to have patience and to trust that he is in control. We are now entering the season of Advent. Contrary to popular belief, it is not Christmas yet! Advent is a time of waiting and preparing. It’s a time when we are reminded that the prophets of old waited for and foretold their Saviour. It’s a time when we hear of the nine month wait of Mary which I’m sure was not easy, and yet she trusted. It’s also a time to be reminded of the wait that we all have as we await the second coming of the Lord Jesus in all his glory. As we wait are we also ready for him? Are we right with God if Jesus were to appear today? During this Advent, in all the rush towards Christmas, please take time to wait in God’s presence, and to prepare our hearts for his Son’s coming both as a baby and in triumph at the end of days.

With Advent blessings

Article – UNDER PRESSURE – Ray Gerry

The thing that has challenged me recently is the thought that, under pressure, our faith life is forced into the open and shows its true colours. People will watch us very closely when life gets unkind to us and delivers us a harsh blow. Secretly they will imagine themselves in our shoes, wondering how they would react if the same thing were to happen to them.And that’s why the prayer that’s on my heart at the moment is simply this: –Father God, please give me your strength and courage in all the challenges of life. And please help me, when I’m under pressure, to keep being an encouragement to everyone I come across so that they, in turn, may put their trust in Jesus.
