Comfort in Trouble

We start a new series this week looking at Paul’s second published (third overall) letter to the Corinthians. Paul finds himself writing to a deeply troubled church, his previous visit had not been particularly well recieved and Paul himself had recently been under extreme pressure during his time in what we would now call modern-day Turkey. As such, he writes in his opening passages about God’s comfort. As Christians we are not promised a trouble-free life – quite the opposite in fact! – but we are reassured that God has anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, put his Spirit in our hearts and will ultimately make us stand firm in Christ.

Susan leads the rest of the service whilst Lynne and Dave lead our sung worship.
