Every now and again events happen that have a dramatic affect on who we are and how we see ourselves.   This week we celebrate one of these events, The Reformation.

This week in our worship series Life with Jesus, come across a crucial parable that makes it clear to us, that our relationship with God is based on His generosity, and not what we have done, how committed we are, how long we have been a Christian, how committed we are or anything else that relies on us.   In Matthew 20:1-16 we are reminded that Life with Jesus is something occurs because God is Generous.

This week in our worship series Life with Jesus, we explore how life with Jesus leads us to persevere in forgiving others.  Like Peter at times we probably wonder, how many times do I need to forgive someone.  In thinking  about this question Jesus encourages us to reflect on the forgiveness that God has already and continues to give to us.
