As we celebrate 100 years of the Anglican Diocese of Armidale serving our district, it’s a time to give thanks to God for our past. It’s also a time to look forward.
There is so much to thank God for… his grace to us in his son Jesus, his daily guidance through the Bible, his daily provision, and each other. God has also blessed us in so many ways through the generosity of our community. And so we have much to thank God for today.
Celebrations and anniversaries are also a time to consider where we are going.
As a church we need to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus Christ. He is God’s answer to all our needs: forgiveness of sin, eternal life, joy in all circumstances, certainty of where our world is heading, and a certain hope of a future with God and his people.
Our world needs Jesus more and more each day. And so let’s keep meeting and encouraging each other in ‘Introducing people to Jesus and helping them home to heaven’ through all we say, do, and pray.
In Christ, Tory Cayzer
