Have you ever wondered what to say to someone as they grieve? I know I have.

On Sunday 26th November we’ll gather with friends to discuss this question. We’ll be helped by professionals who deal with these situations more often than most. We will also be looking into the scriptures for the wisdom of the ages.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.” (2 Corinthians 1:3–7 NIV11)

Grieving is tough. The wrong word can make it harder still.The right word can be a life-saver. We will spend this session learning where effective comfort can be found.

We’ll discuss some practicals and principles of what to say and what not to say – what to do and what not to do.

It will also serve as an introduction to a bereavement course starting in 2018.

Please join us for this special event. There is plenty of car parking space. Classes for children aged 2-9 years old.

If you’d like to know more leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

This Sunday, 29th October I’ll be hosting a panel discussion as part of our church service. The topic is “How to be confident in a chaotic world”.  The panel members will be Dr Penny Cox (GP) and Kate Edwards (Trauma Therapist and counsellor).

The theme scripture is: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28–30 MESSAGE)

An informal lunch follows the service. Everyone is welcome, and classes are provided for younger children. Plenty of car parking.

I’m privileged to have been invited to speak in Harrow at the North-West region of the London International church of Christ this Sunday, 1 October.
 
It’s a special service called, “Reconnect”. The idea is to reconnect with former members of the NW congregation. If you’re someone who worshipped with us back in the day, would you consider coming along and reconnecting with us? I’d love to see you.
 
The lesson will focus on God and his desire to reconnect with us as creator, truth-giver and love-giver.
 
The details are in the accompanying pictures. Feel free to pass it to anyone you think might be interested.
 
Penny & I will both be there.
 
God bless, Malcolm
