This term our sermon series is going to be based in the book of Romans. As we do this we are going to be looking at the ‘One another’ verses that can be found in the Bible (did you know there are over 50 of them?); so we’ve called the series ‘Love One Another-Living as Family’.
We are looking forward to exploring what these different ‘One Another’ passages mean. One of the ways we are going to do this, that we’d love you to start thinking about will be to encourage everyone to get to know one another better by eating together in each other’s houses; a sort of ‘Come dine with me’ but without the rating system! The value behind this is to enable us to get to know each other better and give attention to who we are called to be as the people of God.
The series is going to start on 29th January and will last for 9 weeks, so get the dates in your diary and perhaps put up 1Peter 4:8-9 on your fridge.
“8 Above everything, love one another earnestly, because love covers over many sins. 9 Open your homes to each other without complaining.”
And if you really want to go deep, the greek word for ‘One another’ is ἀλλήλων, pronounced ‘ah-LAY-loan’. Try and drop it into conversation during coffee time….people are certain to be impressed.
