On Sunday 17th May four students from Edgehill College visited Carnalea Methodist. A wonderful praise session was led by Andy Gibson on the piano. Fiona interviewed Des Davis, who is due to go to minister in Dunkineely from July and Nigel Murphy, who has another year at college. Louise Monroe, who is to be stationed in the Newcastle Circuit gave the sermon.
Her theme was joy and highlighted that when Jesus prayed for His disciples in John 17 he asked above all that they would know His joy. God’s joy enables us to handle tough times with serenity and trust. We should delight to shine, to glow in the Lord. We have an inner reality that transforms how we go through life. Our joy is built on the finished work of Christ. His joy should overflow our lives to others.
