Sharing your faith – Rev William Orr

In this sermon Rev William Orr asks us to consider barriers and stereotypes.  For some, bad experiences in church or of church-goers help to build barriers to a relationship with Jesus.  These negative stereotypes can be difficult to overcome and it can be difficult to recognise what preconceptions are firmly in place in the lives of those we meet.  William reminds us that God is a ‘missionary God’ – He works in the lives of those we meet and is currently working in the lives of those we will meet.  Through His grace, we are given the opportunity to meet ‘people of peace’ – those whom God has prepared and are open to His word.  We need to pray for these opportunities and recognise them when they are presented to us.
