If “a penny saved is a penny earned…”
And “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’….
Then is it true that ‘a clock re-set is an hour gained!’
Yes, it is true! At least it will be true this Saturday.
Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend, so, remembering to ‘spring forward and fall back’ we will all reset our clocks on Saturday evening. Our clocks will ‘fall back’ one hour, creating the yearly phenomena of gaining an hour.
We gain by turning back!
A golfer or a tennis player (or anyone engaged in a sport) may find that their game is ‘off’ and to get back to where they want to be, they need to ‘go back’ to the basics, to the skills they first practised and learned. The same is true for musicians and artists and chefs and… By turning back we can again go ahead.
Jesus said that if people wanted to perceive God’s presence in the world, they would have to become like children! He said that those who want to be first would have to go back to last place!
Sometimes we gain by going back, revisiting previous insights, learnings and lessons. Sometimes we gain by going back to a place of less power and prominence and walking humbly with our God.
So, if you want to go back to worship on Sunday morning at 10 a.m., please remember to turn your clocks back one hour on Saturday
This Sunday is our Remembrance Day service. We will not be livestreaming this Sunday. Please join us for in person worship.
We invite you to view the Remembrance Day service posted in 2020.
