The Weekend Sun

Jesus: the Way, the Truth and the Life sunday at 10 10am am thursday at 7pm 146 devonport Rd

You'll love it!

Jesus says in John 14:6, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”. He is also called the Prince of Peace in Isaiah 6:9. In troubled times, in situations where we cannot see a way through, when life itself is overwhelming or as the expression goes, “we don't know which way is up”, our hope is in a Person - the Lord Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Holy Trinity. Our own efforts, and the ways of this world, to find peace, meaning and direction stand as nothing alongside that which is found in the One, who is the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.

We live in times that Jesus speaks about in Luke 21:26 when “men's hearts will fail them for fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world”. But in the midst of it all stands the One, who is the Prince of Peace, for those who have come to God through Him. He is the One who gives peace to His own – not the peace that this fallen world offers but His Peace, which passes all understanding (John 14:27). As the Way, Jesus leads us in His paths. He is the Good Shepherd. As the Truth, He leads us in truth and in righteousness. As the Life, He

is both the source and the direction of our lives, if we have come to salvation through Him. There is no other way to God than through Jesus. Our good works, our best efforts, our own righteousness is insufficient. Jesus is the only way and salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. If you are troubled, anxious, fearful, lost or dismayed, find a bible-believing church that preaches a gospel of repentance and ask them to introduce you to Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life. You will never be the same again. By Peter Whitcombe

Addressing the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff We’ve heard a bit lately about giving kids a good breakfast at school. We know how important it is to start the day well fed – it’s not just a brawn thing, it applies to the brain as well. So, this concept is an admirable one.

We want our kids to be in the best state of mind to be able to learn and grow, and to become well balanced citizens in later life. One can’t help thinking though, as good as this is, is it not just the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff? Of course we must have the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff, otherwise many would be in pretty bad shape. We must do what

we can to those, who for whatever reasons, have fallen over the edge of that cliff. We now ask the obvious? Why are our kids turning up at school hungry? I never did. A friend of mine (not here) runs courses largely government-funded, about Life 101. Candidates on this course learn the basics of life including personal hygiene, preparing a basic meal

and budgeting. They found that candidates thought doing the washing meant putting the clothes in the bath with some water and stomping on them. They had no idea about planning, shopping for, preparing and cooking an absolutely basic but good wholesome nutritious and proteinfilled meal. They had no concept of prioritising finances, and that things like the latest television and game programme is a lesser priority than the food for the week. It was no surprise that the children from homes such as these turn up at school starving. It seems the things we used to learn from our parents, often our mother or grandmother, are not being learned these days. Basic life skills that set one up to be able to live and be a good citizen and contribute to society rather than be a drain on it. Perhaps we as a society (which by the way includes the church) need to look at ways in which these skills can be passed to a young generation. Because as they say, prevention is better than cure (and it usually costs less too). By Pastor Stephen Whitwell, Elim Christian Centre.




Unity Through Community



The Weekend Sun

Jacquie Pullinger coming to Tauranga We shall never forget our visit to the Walled City in Hong Kong. There, among the rat-infested alleyways, water dripped down from above the illegally-erected electric wires. Out of this seeming den of poverty and corruption, came children in immaculatelyironed school uniforms. The contrast was amazing. But many years earlier a young English woman called Jackie Pullinger, too young and unqualified to join a missionary society, asked God what to do with her life. “Go” he replied. And he repeated this whenever she asked. On the advice of a minister, she took the cheapest ship she could find, calling in at the greatest number of countries, and prayed that she would know when to get off. It was into the den of hopelessness and despair that she came, totally unaware of how God would transform her life – and through her – the face of Hong Kong’s Walled City. Jackie reminds us that God’s heart is towards the poor, oppressed and down-trodden. She also reminds us that the City of God is a present as well as a future reality; and that reflections of it can be established even in a place like Kowloon’s Walled City. On the June 14 and 15, Jackie will be speaking at Holy Trinity on ‘Pursuing the Journey with Jesus and the Holy Spirit’. You are most welcome to attend this seminar.

Enduring Power of Attorney week Law firms, the Public Trust and trustee companies will be taking part in a campaign starting on June 14 to encourage people to have Enduring Powers of Attorney. The campaign has been organised by Age Concern Tauranga. There is a good understanding of the need to have a will, but not everyone is aware of the very real problems that exist if someone

loses the capacity to manage their personal or financial affairs through illness or injury – and there is no one appointed to do those things for them. There a number of decisions to be made before Enduring Powers of Attorney can be signed, such as who is to be appointed; what, if any limits are to be put on their powers; and what obligations will they have

to consult with or report to other family members. The law firms and trustee organisations taking part in the campaign are available to provide advice and assistance on all questions relating to Enduring Powers of Attorney. Watch out for the feature in the Weekend Sun next Friday, June 14.
