       Introduction to Meditation

Major Judith introduced her topic , in a week when we have seen many changes , locally and around the world. We were asked if we realised that not one conversation will have taken place  that God has not been part of .

Immanuel – God is with us  , and Major Judith laid out her message in 4 sections

Jesus was given to us but what did that mean for God, For Jesus, For the Human Race & For Us

Immanuel:                            Michael Card


Jesus was Given – What did that mean for the Father?

Major Judith reflected that God gave his Son to people who would betray & Kill him, because he loved us so much


Thorns in the Straw:         Graham Kendrick

Jesus was Given – What did that mean for the Son?

Quoting from Philippians 2 :6-11  

Jesus would be Obedient to Death on the cross , just to be able to spend eternity with us

 Song 100                              Angels from the realms of glory

Tune 398                             Come and worship  

Jesus was Given – What did that mean for the human race?

We had just sang the last line  of the song      ” justice now revokes the sentence,mercy calls you; Break your chains.”  & Major Judith Explained this is what it means for the Human Race – we have a safe place to be in Gods Hands

We heard a track called  All is Well:         by  Point of Grace


Jesus is Given – What does that mean for us?

All is well Jesus is Given  the song said , are we to be trusted with the Gift of God this Christmas ?

God is the gift to be given and we were challenged to ask ourselves if we are doing just that .  Give the Gift  Major Judith said , as this country has been turning away from religion for a long time now

Breath of Heaven               Amy Grant
