Address to Felixstowe Town Council for the making of Cllr Mark Jepson as Mayor.
Faith is slippery.
We can be tempted to think our faith is small and not easily see God’s hand in our life.
We can also fall into the hubris of thinking our faith is ‘great’ and better than that of others.
Our faith grows by becoming deeper not bigger.
Living the faith must involve maturing in the faith. If we never move on from the basics of believing we will be forever sucking dummies of comfort instead of eating the Bread of Llife
Currently, due to Covid-19 restrictions, our parish is running an hour behind the rest of the nation.
Perhaps not a bad thing as looking to the past in times of crisis reminds us of God’s faithfulness then, comfort now and hope for the future
To be successful we are often called to ‘make a name for ourselves’. Yet the very first disciple of Jesus is un-named. Great freedom can be found in a faithfulness that is hidden and unnotice. The less of ourselves that is on view the more of Jesus people will be able to ‘Come and See.’in
At the turn of the year it is tempting and comforting to reminisce about the past. But our vocation remains to step out into the future.
…But what does money talk about? It is not just making good use of our Pounds and Pence which add to the wealth of the Kingdom of God
In Public and Private life many of our ventures fail because we do not completely commit ourselves to them. Commitment to Christ enables all our other loves to be ordered correctly.

To walk in faith always means going where we have not been before nor to places where we are comofrtable. To be faithful means a leap into the unknown knowing only that our Beloved holds us.
