What does God say about how busy we are? (Nick’s last sermon)
3rd November 2019

What does God say about how busy we are? (Nick’s last sermon)

Preacher:
Series:
Passage: Matthew 11:25-30, Isaiah 55:1-3
Service Type:

Busyness?  
How do you feel about busyness?
What thoughts come to mind when you hear that word?

There is no doubt, that to live productive and fruitful lives, there also needs to be an appropriate degree of busyness, and there need to be times of rest and re-creation too!  BUT, so often, we become consumed by busyness, and this in turn leads to anxiety and stress.  Nick looks at the nature of busyness and what the Bible has to say about it.

This sermon is also Nick's last sermon as Vicar of St John's; he is stepping down due to long-term illness.  This audio file also includes his address to the Church Family.  Nick will remain on full-time sick leave until his retirement and end of April; he will give the Easter sermon which will be followed two weeks later by Nick & Penny's farewell service.
