The summer is a good time to break free from the normal routines of life and try something new. Over the years at Gladsmuir and Longniddry Parish Churches we have used the period from early July to late August for some biblical exploration that might prove a little different.
This year our short summer services are focusing on the subject of parables: little stories told by Jesus that offer big lessons in life and faith. From the well-loved and familiar parables, including “The Good Samaritan”, and “The Prodigal Son”, to less obvious ones, the Bible offers us plenty to wonder at across its pages.
Come along to Longniddry at 9.45am or Gladsmuir at 11am, and join in the search for meaning within these pearls of story-telling. There’s certainly a whole lot to learn together!
Meanwhile, our summer services would not be the same without our annual display of holiday postcards. As ever, see if you can find a card which ties in with our service theme – of parables – failing which, any nice card will be gratefully received, scanned and shown on the big screen at the close of worship each week.
Whatever you do and wherever you go this summer, have a great one!
