Preparation is Everything!
6 March 2016

Preparation is everything!  I have been really aware of that this week as I have been preparing to take nine YMCA residents on a retreat to a Christian ministry centre, Nicholaston House in Wales, next week.  What makes the week run smoothly and successfully, so that everyone not only has a good time, but gets a chance to reflect on their lives and come closer to God, is preparation, both practical and in prayer.  Lent is a time when we remember how Jesus prepared his disciples for his death, resurrection and gift of the Holy Spirit.  He does this in surprising ways...  Love each other, forgive each other, wash each other's feet, and celebrate God's forgiveness to you through the breaking of bread together...  As I read these stories again I wonder how prepared am I to come to worship with others each Sunday or to celebrate Easter?  There is no doubt the more we prepare, the more we will get out of our meeting together.
