Welcome to Agincourt Church this morning! We're so glad you have joined us today.

See below for a short article from Pastor Jonathan, teaching notes and announcements.
Complicated: (kämple,kāded) Consisting of many interconnecting parts or elements; intricate.

The Bible takes such an intriguing and helpful approach to complicated subject matters - never minimizing dif cult or sensitive issues and never reducing complex issues of life to oversimpli ed soundbites. The Bible acknowledges the struggles and dif culty we face in our world today. It offers us hope and a way forward by helping us untangle complicated issues and by providing us with truth that truly sets us free!

Let’s approach this month of teaching with grace and humility; posturing our heart to both learn and change as God speaks to us. You may be surprised to see how God may change your mind, your behaviour or even your capacity to love others!

Jonathan Smith

“Honour is the unsentimental moral nucleus for your relationship with your parents.”

~ Lewis Smedes
HONOUR is a decision to treat your parents with dignity and with courtesy and it’s also a decision to provide long-term loyalty to their BEST interests.

2. You honour your parents by forgiving them
