                            Luke 7: 11 -  17      They have gone before us


 
 
Any funeral scene is sad. But the scene that greeted Jesus and his apostles at Naid was a particularly sad one. It involved the funeral of a young boy, the only son of a widowed mother. The loss of a child is surely the heaviest cross any parent could be asked to carry.They say that when the old die, they take part of our past (our history) with them. And when the young die they take part of our future with them. The sense of loss can be so great that it causes the one who mourns to neglect his/her own life, and perhaps to lose the will to live.

31 May - 06 June 2016





Leader: In the Name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Amen


The Leader says:We have come together as the family of God

In our Father’s presence to offer him praise and thanksgiving

that through his son Jesus Christ

we may give ourselves to his service.

with undefilèd tongue, Son of our God, Giver of life, alone!

Therefore in all the world thy glories, Lord, they own.
