Light Breaks Through
The service at Falmouth Methodist Church today was led by Local Preacher Miss Jean Whetham and began with a call to worship including the phrase, ‘grace to help in time of need’ and this became the trope for the service.
With the Pop-Up Choir, socially distanced from each other, the congregation heard hymn number 315 We Sing the praise of Jesus. This was followed by the poem ‘Ascension’ which contained references to ‘heaven opened’, ‘we saw Him go but we were not parted’ and ‘light break through.’
Following the reading of Psalm 800 the New Testament was read by June Martin and this was Acts chapter 1 verses 1-11: reminding us of the promise of the Holy Spirit following the ascension of Jesus. Mr Tony Thomas read the Old Testament reading.
In her sermon, entitled God Versus the World, Miss Whetham preached on our need as Christians to challenge the wrong that we see around us and that sometimes God asks us ‘not to follow the crowd’. Referencing the Beatitudes, she told us that they were spoken against much of the culture of the day and that God expects that of us today where we see injustice and wrong doing.
