Year Text in Context 2023

A few weeks ago we revealed our year text for 2023: let your light shine (Matt. 5:16). This week Chris looks at the verse in it’s original context, towards the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount. We find the verse nestled between the Beatitudes and Jesus’ teaching that whoever obeys the commands of God will find themselves called great in the kingdom of Heaven. What does that therefore mean for our year text?

Karen leads the rest of the service with our sung worship led by Pete and Nick.
