Saide Cameron welcomed us to worship on 6th November.  We welcomed Brad Coath, member of our congregation as our preacher.  Brad is a community worker at Urban Neighbours of Hope and chaplain at a local primary school.  We were glad to have Janet Reus-Smit, also a member of our congregation, presiding over our celebration of Holy Communion while Ian was on leave.   Responding to the strange question asked of Jesus in today’s Gospel reading Brad helped us to explore patriarchal power in the ancient world and themes of liberation as we continue the work of reimagining power relationships.
