Thought for the week…
 
Joyful living requires giving
 

Most people are selfish and self-centered, focusing only on what benefits them. Such thinking claims that the more you have, the more you accumulate, and the more attention you receive, the happier you’ll be.

Yet, most of the time, such selfishness only makes a person more depressed than ever. This is because when all you focus on is yourself, you’ll always want more, and you’ll never be satisfied with what you have. On the other hand, if you live focused on how you can bless others and serve them, then God will give you joy.

It is no surprise, therefore, that Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35)

Green Sparks are an ecumenical environmental group which was formed in July 2016, with their first meeting taking place in September.
Anyone is free to join!
The group will work alongside other local groups with environmental aims, such as REAP (Roundhay Environment Action Project).
Their objectives will focus around campaigning on environmental issues, promoting active projects from Christian Aid, Operation Noah and Climate Coalition amongst others, also in educating the local community on sustainability, waste reduction, energy efficiency and how the impacts of climate change can affect our natural environment.
The group’s first activity will be the Environment Afternoon on Saturday 4th February.

Inspiration in the inbox

Daily Devotions from the United Reformed Church will start on the first Sunday of Advent (27 November) and continue throughout the year. Each day, a reading, reflection and short prayer, written by one of 85 writers from different places and perspectives in the URC, will arrive in your inbox. Over 750 people have signed up to receive the free Daily Devotion service so far. See here, to add your name. Andy Braunston, who is coordinating the project, said: ‘Many people read them on their phone whilst commuting or they might offer a time of quiet in the midst of the day.’
