Today Pam is sharing with us her reflections from the Bible on “I believe in the communion (or fellowship), of the saints and the life everlasting.” I have no idea what Pam will have to say but I found her first reading choice particularly intriguing: Then he showed me the high priest Joshua standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.

I want to give thanks this week for encouragement. There are so many examples of people joining in with the Holy Spirit in ways that bring so much encouragement. I shared the front with two of our parishioners during funerals this past week or so, whose lives, words and love were such an encouragement to me.

It was a quick trip to the UK and back but why was I there? You may be aware that I lived in a Christian Community for ten years.  The fruit of that was what I would call an ‘integrated Christian life’ – that is a life that does not separate God stuff from life stuff.
