And one more thing ...

Philemon 1.22

 

Last Sunday (20 May) the Church was subjected to an arson attack against the Boiler Room door.  The offender voluntarily surrender themselves to the Police, was charged and pleaded guilty at the Magistrates Court.  As this is a serious offence they will be sentenced at Exeter Crown Court on 19 June.  It seems that the individual wants to go back to prison and I assume views being detained as preferable to life on the outside!  So not only has a serious offence been committed but this also eflects a sad human story as well.  The Church sought justice in having this person charged but we should also hope and pray for compassion and an opportunity for this person to sort their life out.  God's justice and compassion are not opposites but complimentary aspects of his character.
