This morning’s theme was The boy Jesus at the temple as described in Luke 2:41-52
Mary Britton read the Bible passage and Lesley Gubbins spoke on it.
Elisabeth Stewart then led an Agape Meal. The Agape was the Love Feast of early apostolic times, a simple meal to which everyone was invited. All differences of economic and social standing were ignored, as Christians met as members of one family. As a sign of equal membership, the rich brought food for the poor, who brought nothing. The word ‘Agape’ describes a love which is selfless, sacrificial and unconditional. It is the love God has for us, shown in Jesus’ sacrificial death. In sharing this meal, we pray that we may then demonstrate that love to one another in our daily lives.
