It’s Black Sunday!

Black Sunday PosterOn Black Friday, lots of people head to the shops so I figured that I would call today Black Sunday to inspire people to go to church.

On Black Friday, shoppers desperately try to save money by err… spending money that they perhaps otherwise wouldn’t have spent.

On Black Friday, people hunt for bargains to make them feel good. Most of the items on sale aren’t necessities, they are generally things that we might want but they aren’t often things that we can say we need.

On Black Sunday I hope that we can pause and consider God. I believe that ultimate meaning and fulfillment are found in God alone. God may or may not be what you think you want, but I believe with all of my heart that God is what you need.

How about you? Will you join the mad rush this Black Sunday and head to church in your search for meaning and fulfillment?

I have been thinking about the time when one of Jesus’ disciples, Peter disowned him. That day must have felt like a really black day for Peter but the good news is that rather than being rejected by Jesus, Peter went on to become one of the key leaders in the first church.

When we make mistakes, God doesn’t disown us.

When we turn from God, he doesn’t turn from us.

When we feel like we are in dark (or black?) places, God offers us a new start.

It’s Black Sunday. Which church will you go to?
