As we continue our Sermon Series on the Lord's Prayer we arrived on Sunday at possibily the trickest clause 'forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us'

To quote HM The Queen 'God sent into the world a unique person - neither a philisopher nor a general, important though they are, but a Saviour, with the power to forgive. Forgiveness lies at the heart of the Christian faith. It can heal broken families, it can restore friendships and it can reconcile divided communities. It is in forgiveness that we feel the power of God's love.'

We celebrated the freedom forgiveness brings and had the opportunity to come again to God in forgiveness as we wrote in felt pen on bits of tin foil and then came and 'washed away' our sin in water.

We were also delighted to be joined for our service by the Mayor of Oadby & Wigston Cllr. Lynda Eaton. It was good to be able to interview her, learn more about our Mayor and pray for her near the start of her mayoral year.
