Imagine for a moment that tragedy has struck.
Maybe you’ve lost your job, or the doctor has bad news for you, or
something or someone you were counting on has let you down.
How do you cope?
One of the most surprising statements in the Bible is from James, who
writes, ‘Consider it pure joy whenever you face trials.’ That’s the sort of
statement that can often leave people rolling their eyes at you. Maybe
you wouldn’t want James for a comforter!
But James goes on to say that when things
are tough you are really able to trust Jesus.

easy you’d never need to rely on him.
You’d never be able to experience his
sufficiency for everything life throws at you.

New to this church? Good! WELCOME! We want to welcome you into the family.
Please ask about being part of a small home group—it’s the way to belong. And ask
about how your gifts can be used!
Your offerings bless further!
When you give to God locally through Clifton
Parish - you also give wider!
Who does it go to? We'll remind you here! As you
thank God that different groups are benefitting
financially, do pray for them too!
£2500 was given to Neema Crafts in Tanzania. Ben and Katy
Ray now run Neema, enabling severely disabled people to
learn crafts and become self sufficient.
