“I will call my people and gather them together. I will rescue them for I have redeemed them.” (Zechariah 10)
This is the time for small cell groups or home church communities to gather together, making an effort to support and fellowship with one another. We re-connect links that would otherwise remain broken and forgotten.
There are literally hundreds of small faith communities that meet in local homes or small centers, on a weekly or even monthly basis. Stand up and be counted in faith and truth.
During this changing and challenging spiritual time, we are reminded of what God says, “I can never forget you. I have written your name in the palm of my hand.” (Isaiah 49:16)
Let us not forget one another and take cause to re-connect.
The winds of change blow this way and that way. We never know which way the winds will blow in our lives.

Keep yourself anchored in and God the Light, and all will be well.
Remember the words of Jesus,” Don’t be afraid,” He said. “Take courage. I am here! ”
When the wind blows and you feet are firmly planted on the ground, the wind does not blow directly at you, but can flow around you.
‘Yes, come,’ Jesus said. “So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. ‘Save me, Lord!’ Peter shouted.”
This is the miracle- God is present in every situation or experience in our lives, both good and bad. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed Peter. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”
This is a given – the wind will eventually settle and the sea of life will calm down.
“And when they got back into the boat the wind died down.”
