Messy Church - November 2016

Our activities today were based on Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.”


Sometimes we are sad, angry, feel alone. Sometimes life is difficult.

We can talk to God about things that make us sad and the Bible tells us that he cries with us.



Thank you, Lord that in your hands even our anger and sadness can be turned to something good. Help us to remember that you are there besides us whatever we are feeling. Amen
