Hello again, another week has flown past. We have been having lots of fun in the Carhart household. Beth has been amazing with the hammer, she has attached lots of tongue and groove to battens for our new bath panel. Josh was been busy cutting the wood and drilling holes in the wall for a new towel rail. Very proud Dad - they have done lots of jobs. The painting was possibly the most messy though! (and the most fun?)

Summer is definitely upon us, and it's very hot out there, you may have noticed! This week we are looking in our service at how Jesus came to change the way of the world. He gave us a new way to obtain righteousness (that rightful relationship with God). We no longer need follow the law alone, we can obtain righteousness by simply believing in him. That gift of grace, that gift of free forgiveness and righteousness is open to everyone. Our reading Roman's 10 v5-15 make it clear that this faith based method is available to 100% of the human population.
There is one part of this week's reading we don't talk about and that's v14 and v15. These verses point out the obvious fact that no one can access that gift if no one tells them about it. There is then a challenge for you and I to share this exciting news with the world. That doesn't mean we need to hire an aeroplane and a big banner. Instead we can share that message in our daily encounters, in conversations, in letters and emails and anywhere we meet someone who just doesn't know. They have a right to know how happy they could be if they knew of this gift.


Right, we have a door to paint, and lots of other jobs to do, so time to crack on. We four send you our love and wish you a happy and blessed week!
Jon, Helen, Josh and Beth
