“There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 New International Version
It is summer school holidays here in the Netherlands!
Many will be taking time off work/study and going away. If that includes you, have a great break.
Let’s be praying for those around the world who don’t have opportunities – such as all impacted by the conflict in Ukraine (including ‘Father’s House Church in Dnipro that we are supporting as a congregation).
As a church community we will be meeting still through the summer, though not always at the school. A bit further below is a schedule of Sunday gatherings that are due.
Whether going on holiday or not, perhaps you could take some time this summer to reflect on the year so far. Maybe the following questions could be a help. It is not meant to feel like homework! If it is not a good time to be doing this, then just ignore…
- What are you grateful for? What has been going well?
- How do you see your following of Christ at present? What is one thing that you could build into your life that might help?
- How is your health doing – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, relationally? Is there anything you need to pay special attention to?
- Is there anything that you need to grieve or express disappointment about? If so, what will help you with this?
- Is there anyone or anything that you want to prioritise for the months ahead?
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom”
Psalm 90:2 New International Version
Whether home or away, hope you have a good July and August.
