I guess, like most of us, you may have developed some bad habits over the years. My wife frequently reminds me that I have quite a few!
But during this season of Lent that leads up to Easter, here in the Methodist Churches in Gornal and Sedgley, we are looking at developing some good habits. Based on a great resource entitled 'Holy Habits', we are studying a series of themes which, if we put them into regular practice, should help us to live better lives and have a closer relationship with God and with people around us.

One New Testament writer, St Paul, encouraged Christians in the first century to put on kindness, compassion, patience and other qualities seen in the Lord Jesus Christ - to enable them to be better people - not only in the church but in society generally.
As twenty-first century Christians, we are seeking to do the same so that these Christ-like attributes become daily habits in our lives.

It won't make us perfect - but it might just change us so that we make a more positive impact in our communities.

If you'd like to know more about the 'Holy Habits', the books are available and, of course, you can always come and join us in our efforts to be better people - as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ!
We'd love to welcome you to our services.
