A Question of Recognition

Moneyreagh Non-Subscribing Presbyterian church  Sunday 2nd February 2020 - Address: ‘A question of recognition’. 

Rev. Chris Wilson

Friends, do you ever mistake identity? You know the kind of thing, you think you know who someone is, but when you seek to confirm your feelings, your intuition, it turns out to be someone completely different

I recall when I lived in Cambridge. Sandra and I had a friend, Frank. In those days, we were out most nights (this was long-before the children came along) attending meetings of one kind or enough. Frank would do the same, but for some reason whenever we met, he would always call me Keith

A Word Fitly Spoken

Rev. Dr. Linda Ballard 

‘A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver’

This verse, the eleventh verse of the Book of Proverbs, chapter twenty five, is quite a challenge as a text for a sermon! As I was thinking about and preparing for today, however, it kept returning to my mind and I thought about the various ways in which it might be interpreted. It is certainly good advice to bear in mind when preparing a sermon and considering the choice of words to use! Of course, following good advice can indeed be challenging!
