Following the news in the EDP and on Network Norwich that The Family Life Centre and Drayton Hall Church are to merge to from Norwich Family Life Centre, I thought I'd offer my thoughts.
Firstly, I see this as a challenge to every other church in Norwich to put aside their prejudices and to encourage these churches as they move on from their respective pasts. God is moving in Norwich (again) and we need to stand together. I'm reminded of God's warning in Isaiah 7:9 (last part) "If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all". We need to stick with God, and each other.
Secondly, I think we need to recognise that God is doing a few big, new, things, and that we can be a part of what he's up to.
Finally, I want to say that I offer my support to all who lead the church. I pray that they'll follow God and Trust that He knows best. Amen!
