Rev David Cook – “The Adventure of Living” – Friday night

Revd David Cook, previously vicar of Chipping Campden, will be speaking at our Friday Night Fellowship Meeting for February.  

David will speak on the theme “The Adventure of Living”

Join us as we seek the Lord together – All welcome

See the Diary for Friday night speakers on other dates

_____________

David was born in Australia and educated bit in the Far East and the U.K, studying History and Theology at Oxford, and, after a brief spell of teaching, was ordained into the Church of England in 1967.

After 4 years as a curate on a housing estate in Chatham, David worked for six years in South Africa for the Scripture Union in high schools all over the country, followed by eleven years in a multi-racial parish in Cape Town.  Returning to the UK in 1989 with his wife and daughters, he became team rector of Newbury and a son was added to the family.

Thirteen years there were followed by eleven years as the vicar of Chipping Campden, and now David is retired and continues to live in the Cotswolds.

After many years of service to God and His people, David will speak from experience of the Adventure of Living, and we know the evening will be one to encourage and inspire us.

Faith to Walk with Jesus – “Faith” Bible studies (led by John Trimming)

John Trimming will lead three Bible studies on “Faith” over three Friday nights evenings this February.

Matthew 11: 4, 5 “Go and report to John what you hear and see: the blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”

Image result for jesus lame man walkingWhen John the Baptist, near his death, began to doubt that Jesus was the one he had prophesied was coming, Jesus pointed to the effect of his being in the world.  He listed visible effects in the lives of those who accepted and believed in him.

As we believe in Jesus, we will find the same is true of us in a spiritual sense:

  • though we were blind spiritually, we begin to see and understand;
  • though we were deaf to God’s voice, we can hear and obey him;
  • through faith we can walk with Jesus

The talks over these three evenings will reflect on key scriptures on faith associated with these images. 

We hope that reflecting on faith in February will help us to prepare for in-depth meditation on Scripture during the 12 weeks of the “Big Picture” which follow on from these evenings.
