Welcome to our Sunday Morning Service.

We'll begin with a song calling all to celebrate God's love in sending Jesus, who died for us and rose again.

Say it loud, say it strong!

Far and near hear the call

Anthony will now lead us in prayer

Let's continue to praise God as we sing Amazing grace (my chains are gone)

Helen Roseveare

Doctor Helen Roseveare, affectionately called "Mama Luka," pioneered vital medical work in the rain forests of the Belgian Congo—now Zaire - in the 1950's and 60's. After Independence in 1964, the country was ravaged by the Simba Rebellion. Helen, caught up in the horror of the revolution, was beaten, raped and imprisoned by the rebels.  She tells the story in the book Give me this Mountain.

This video clip was recorded when she made a return visit.  A link to the book follows that.

Pat is reading the Bible passage for today | Mark 11:12-25

Optional background videos on the temple

The following videos are about 8 minutes and 15 minutes long respectively.  Feel free to skip them or watch them later.  

The first video is a virtual reconstruction of the temple in Jesus' day.  The reconstruction is based on historical and archaeological evidence which is open to interpretation.  It starts with the approach to the temple and takes you into the outer courts where the incident in today's reading took place and then up onto a pinnacle where a trumpet was blown to mark the beginning of the Sabbath.

The second video gives more background on Herod's temple and further virtual reconstructions.

Let's ask God to speak to us as we sing Speak O Lord
