My ‘house arrest‘ is over so I gingerly made my way to Church Town and Life Group for the first time in seven weeks. It was great to be back, though a little strange to actually be with these people in person rather than emailing my responses to the LG topics. I settled in quite quickly though, complete with footstool and biscuits.
Tonight we prayed for a variety of situations including a double murder – a child and his mother – in a quiet village near to us. The man held on suspicion of murder tried to stab himself too. I just hope there isn’t some sort of vigilante fervour going on in the village. Clearly the man is not in his right mind.
The fact that a family can get to a place where this can happen shows how important it is for us to be supported by community. This is where the church can come in.
