Today Father Mervyn presided and preached whilst Father Martin preached at Goodmayes. In his sermon Father Mervyn suggested that his sermon today might be a big turn-of as he was going to talk about sin. He pointed out that we are all guilty of sin and that we all need both forgiveness, redemption and restoration. The Gospel pointed out that God did not visit harm on people because they sinned although, sometimes, they brought it on themselves. It laid to rest that statement : “wonder what he/she did to deserve that.” The story about the tower at Siloam squashed any idea that we need to ask that question because God loved us so much that he gave his only Son to save us from our sins ultimately offering his life for our salvation in his death on the cross.
