Unfortunately our scheduled speaker was unavailable and so we adopted a different strategy. We asked people to reflect and share about how God has been working over the past year in the midst of the upheaval and uncertainty that we have all faced. A number of people shared about how God had been close to them and also how they had felt supported during the year.
One person shared how they had been challenged to live in the now and not to look forward to when things will go back to some sort of normal. If we do this then we risk missing out on what God is doing now.
The overall messages were encouraging and reinforced the fact that God is working in our lives, even though we might feel unsettled or overwhelmed.
