Two Sides of the Same Coin
During this time where our public gatherings are not able to meet, each Sunday we are providing you with a liturgy that you can use at home. You can use it in a number of ways: on your own, with your family, or with others from our church community via video conferencing. Our suggestion is that you take time to move through each of the sections below, listening to the songs, reflecting on the liturgy and hearing the word preached exactly as we do on a Sunday. As you move through it why not talk with others or, if you are on your own, message someone from your City Group or DNA Group to share something that really struck you. The bible is full of images to help us understand who God is and who we are. One of the images that is often repeated is that God is the great shepherd and his people are his sheep. This might not seem very flattering to us after all, who wants to be a sheep but it is an image rich with comfort and joy. Use these verses from Psalm as you start your time of worship to remember that in Jesus you belong to the great shepherd who cares for you and watches over you.

There are many great and wonderful people in the church, and the real evil about the church is that it harms those great and wonderful people. Mormonism is fundamental to my religious beliefs and my personal sense of identity, and it is the community that I identify with most strongly.
