03May Presider’s Page for 3 May (Easter 5)

Like branches of one tree, we are held together by our faith in Christ. Because we are all part of this one living plant, we come together in thanksgiving and praise.

More than just a code to guide us

Religion too can degenerate into code and cult, into a matter of laws to be kept, and ceremonies or rites to be carried out, and in time become dry and musty, like the mummies of Egypt. Some people seem to want religion to be mummified, to be static and unchanging. But Christianity has got to be a living, a vibrant force in life.
