A furry lesson in love

Posted by Anne Witton on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, In : Reflections 


Five weeks ago we got a cat. For a couple of nights before we collected him, I didn’t sleep very well as various thoughts were going through my mind. What if he’s aggressive? What if he shreds all our furniture? What if he’s sick everywhere? What if he doesn’t like us? What if he stinks?

We all had a chuckle when an ‘anti-red eye pen’ turned out to be basically a black biro that you scribbled on your photos with.)

Our church verses of the year for 2021 are Hebrews 10: 23 - 25

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

Here's a short talk I gave about staying faithful to our faithful God, encouraging one another and living in the light of the c...
