Easter marked my return to the church, and – barring last week (when it just seemed everything was happening at once and I didn’t get a chance to draw breath and sit down till gone 9pm on Thursday) – the midweek group at the Bakers’. Freda has been a little unsettled; she’s grown unused to the old Sunday routine and she’s having to readjust again.
Today I decided to sit near the back by the soft play area, and Freda was much happier and better behaved, which meant I was more relaxed and better able to pay attention to what was going on – which I was glad about, because David Baker was doing the sermon. The church is starting a new sermon series about the Holy Spirit, seeking to explore and understand further.
- The Father is the Mind of God.
- The Son is the Body of God.
- The Holy Spirit is the Soul of God.
Just as a human is not merely the sum of disparate parts, but one unified being, so is God one unified Being.
I have started to keep a paper journal, writing down thoughts and ideas together with phrases from scripture or other writings that strike a chord with me, which in turn will hopefully give me further “food for thought”.
