Welcome to you

Filed under welcome

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer or questioning.  We especially welcome wailing babies and excited toddlers. We welcome you whether you like to sing with your hands in the air (like you just don’t care) or prefer to contemplate the concept of worship with God quietly.

You’re welcome here if you see God as a He, a She, or if you’re not sure if God is real, or if you and The Almighty talk to each other regularly.  We don’t care if you think you are a great Christian or, like most of us, struggle with self doubt and often forget He loves you.  We welcome those who are over 30 and are realising they know less than they thought, and we extend a special welcome to teenagers who might be realising they know almost everything.

We welcome mums playing catch-up, football-watching dads, starving artists, tree huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, junk food eaters, if you just woke up or just got out of prison.  We especially welcome those who are in recovery or not ready to own their addiction, the high and mighty and the down-in-the-dumps. 

We welcome you if you’re having problems, you think you are a problem, can’t get organised, or don’t like organised religion—which we don’t like either.  We offer welcome to those who think the Earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here only because you are visiting friends in Cambridge. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither.  We want to make time for those on linked-in, facebook, youtube, twitter, snapchat, instagram, who don’t like the internet or don’t own a computer.

We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throats as kids, are curious about spirituality, or found us by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters, people who don’t like being categorised, and you.

fun Swim, light lunch and water baptism.  Fantastic!

what a great day.  They say that when one sinner repents there is much rejoicing in Heaven.  There was much rejoicing in CLC too.

Why are we here? What’s the point?

Plumbline Leaders Retreat 2016

One of the great things about our yearly Plumbline Leaders Retreat is Jean, from HCC, sharing a quiet and gentle Word of prophecy with folks one on one.  She uses beautiful picture postcards to kickstart Father talking to you through her.  

 

Here’s the one she gave me this year.  The Word accompanying it was a simple: Sometimes Father wants you to relax.  There was more, but see her in the background of these photos?  That’s her in the middle sharing with another:

We had good input from Simon Matthews, other leaders in Plumbline, and very valuable relationship time to make new friends and deepen existing ones with our spiritual family members from Plumbline Ireland and Plumbline UK.

Tim shared about how we can run up our ‘rev counter’ like  a car but need to be prepared to change gears–shifting up as well as shifting down, depending on what’s right in His timing for us.

Rosemary‘s stories were my favourites and Graeme‘s gift for teaching always shines through too.   All these recordings and the rest are on the Plumbline Facebook page for you to check out to get a sense of the Plumbline Ireland’s sense of humour, our DNA of reality and faith, and good solid guidance.

Like a pie-chart, but it’s made out of a cake.

We are thankful for generous giving of CLCers that will help us to give to people for missionary work in Morocco, fighting sex trafficing in Moscow, church planting in Great Britain, emergency aid around the globe, as well as community needs in Cambridge and supporting Christians in Parliament!  Most of all, we are thankful for our generous Father God who gives us every good thing that we enjoy.
