Exciting Sunday School and Youth Group yesterday

Yesterday the Sunday School met and were so many that a few of our regular children joined the Youth Group instead. So thirteen of were left, a mixture of Americans, Nigerians, English-French and Madagascans, as well as Juanecia, our Caribbean contingent. Two of our youngest members decided to propose our Opening Prayer.

We quickly remembered our last couple of lessons, Jesus in the Temple, His Baptism and His Temptation in the Desert, before exploring in depth the topic of the day, which was the turning of the water into wine at the wedding in Cana. We thought about how Jesus shares with us our happiness and our sadness – about how much he loves and cares about us, how he uses the most mundane of vessels to accomplish great things and we touched briefly on how the ordinary wine was followed by the wonderful wine, a suggestion of how our earthly lives will be followed by a far more wonderful one to come.

The younger children were then happy to colour in the illustrations of the story while the older ones pitted their wits against the Wordsearch, the Crossword, the puzzles and the mulitple-choice questions based on the Bible text and the memory verse.

There were a total of five in our Youth Group sharing discussion was based on Mark 2:1-12 (Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralyzed Man).

Everyone shared and learnt heartedly about God’s grace and mercy and forgives our sins. Reflection on how Sin came about in Genesis, plus what is Sin (1st reading from Exodus). Lastly listening to “Covered – by Planetshakers” and saying a prayer together from the lyrics.

Everyone then returned to the chapel to join the adults for Communion.

New Year Message from our Chaplain the Reverend Tony Lomas

The Lord says, “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there.” Isaiah 43:18-19

Dear Friends,

Ingrid and I would like to send you all our very best wishes for the New Year and to express our immense gratitude to everyone for all that you have done over the last year to make our Chaplaincy such a vibrant place to be. We have been particularly touched by the warmth of the welcome and support that you have shown us which has enabled us to feel remarkably settled in such a comparatively short time.

Naturally now our eyes turn forward to the coming year and I guess we are all wondering what it holds in store for us. It is all too easy to carry a sense of foreboding from the events of last year but, as the above verse from Isaiah reminds us, God is constantly drawing us forward into His future rather than wanting us to dwell on the past. However dry and difficult the terrain ahead of us might seem, He always prepares a path for us and provides us with the water of life.

I delight in the fact that, as a Chaplaincy, we are constantly striving, through prayer, study and worship, to follow God’s path ourselves and to draw others to join us. During the coming year I feel certain that there will be many opportunities for us to grow together as Christ’s body in Aquitaine and to reach out to the various communities in which we live. I feel really excited by the awesome privilege of working through this year with you as your Chaplain and sharing in the many blessings that I am sure God has for us on our journey together.

With much love and every blessing,

Tony and Ingrid
