** NEW** VINE AT HOME
This week Tim reflects on the set readings for us “…To love is to get hurt, to get bruised. We will feel people’s pain with them, and we will feel pain when they reject us, let us down, or seek to manipulate our love for their own ends. But we will dust ourselves off. We will nurse our wounds. And we go again.
Our world is crying out for more love, for a better kind of love. As the church of Jesus Christ, let’s show them what the word means. All we need is love.”
Don't forget that The Vine at Home is live-streamed every Sunday Morning at 10.30am on Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth and Lympstone Methodist Churches Facebook page. It is then posted later in the day onto to The Worship Cloud Facebook page.
