I commend to you my good friend Bob Grahame’s creative new book
Technojungle Safari which looks at how we can preserve our humanity and uniqueness in this age of massive technological changes. For a short time, you can read his ebook for free online, giving Bob helpful feedback in his final editing process. You are encouraged to repost this to other friends who may share your concerns about the dehumanizing potential of out-of-control technology.

Church at All Saints at 10:45 am this Sunday
✓ I pray you’ve been safe and healthy this week. I’m glad to announce that we’re having church again (Sunday the 20th of September) at 10:45am. PSAT
Please note that because of a “glitch” in YouTube, we can only start the service at 10:45am this week. (Unfortunately, the problem lies with YouTube and as yet, we haven’t been able to resolve the timing issue with them.)
You can find the Service by clicking HERE.

This is a wonderful time to fellowship together.

Simon & Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water (Audio) In the Jesus Movement, we thought of Jesus our bridge & mediator as we sang this song 🙂
Please pray for complete healing for my dear wife Janice P Hird who had surgery over three weeks ago. She is being very careful, not bending over to pick things up. She appreciates my helping her put on her socks and shoes.
“Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.”

John Owen. “Secondly, God allows man to be tested to show himself to man. Until we are tested,see think that we are living on our own strength. It is however, God alone who keeps us from falling by his preventing grace. We might say, ‘All men may do this or that, but we will not!’ When the trial comes, however, we quickly see that only God’s preservation upholds us. So it was with Abimelech (Gen. 20 : 6), God withheld him from sinning. God also reveals his renewing grace through our testings. Paul, in His prayer for deliverance from the thorn in his flesh, found God’s sufficiency and renewing grace (2 Cor. 12 : 9).
We do not realise the power and strength that God puts forth on our behalf, and the sufficiency of his grace, until we compare our trials with our weakness. God’s power and grace are then seen clearly in our lives. The effectiveness of an antidote is not realised until one has been exposed to the poison. The preciousness of a medicine is revealed by the presence of the disease. We will not know the power of grace until we feel the power of the testing. We must be tried, to realise the glory of being preserved.”
