Parkerville Baptist Church
This Sunday we have a guest speaker, Pastor Mike Bullard, who will be bringing us the message this week. Mike has been part of the Parky story on and off for years now, including speaking at church camps and serving as interim whilst Pastor Craig Lydon was on leave, and we're looking forward to hearing from him again!
Mike says: "Ever been to a sporting match and been offended by "that feral supporter" - usually of the other team. Our team's supporters are always much more reasonable....or so it seems. What's happening in that feral supporter? They've seen something, interpreted it through the lens of their team's success, and let fly if anything has challenged that. They're not really concerned for the ref, or the other team, or other fans. It's all about them and their right to protest injustice against their sacred team. I wonder if we might often be like that supporter. Maybe we're not as feral, but we all tend to look at life through the lens of what works for me. What might it mean to get a new set of lenses? What might life look like through the lens of the thoughts or feelings of another? Are we developing that new set of lenses? Are we overdue for a visit to the optometrist?"
