Speaking the truth in love

We’ve had cause recently to talk about some big issues at St Barnabas recently. If you want to start a discussion in church, try moving the chairs round! There have been all kinds of reactions. But what’s been really impressive is that people haven’t said, “This way or nothing else”. Instead they’ve talked to each other, shared the issues that have been important and tried hard to come to a definite decision, even when they might hold different views. At the PCC meeting last night, after some honest and frank discussion, we remarkably came up with an agreed way forward, even though at the beginning we held different positions. I really sense the Lord was at work. Maybe we starting to understand a little of what Paul says when he talks about speaking the truth in love and growing up into Christ (Col 4:15).

So how have we set out the church?

Well, you’ll have to come along on Sunday to find out…
