Quotes to Consider:
Thomas Manton: "It is for the honour of the Son
of God that he should be head of the new world. In the kingdom of
Christ all things are new. There is a new covenant, which is the
gospel; a new paradise, not that where Adam enjoyed God among the
beasts and trees of the garden, but where the blessed enjoy God
amongst the angels. A new ministry, not the family of Aaron, or tribe
of Levi, but the ministry of reconciliation, whom God hath qualified
and fitted to be dispensers of these holy mysteries. New ordinances;
we serve God not in the oldness of the letter, but the newness of the
Spirit; new members, or new creatures, that are made partakers of the
benefits, therefore also a new head, or a second Adam, that must be
the beginning of this new creation, and that is the Lord Jesus Christ,
who is made a quickening spirit to all his members (I Cor. 15:45),
‘The first Adam was made a living soul, the second a quickening
spirit.’ Adam communicated natural life to his posterity, but from
Christ we have the Spirit" (Works, vol. 1, p. 466).

Philip Rainey is organizing a congregational
outing to Rathlin Island on Saturday, 26 June. We plan (DV) to
cross on the 10 AM ferry from Ballycastle, and once on the island walk
3 miles from the harbour to the RSPB Sanctuary at the West Lighthouse.
(If you prefer not to walk, a minibus can take you there.) Group rate
ferry prices are £7.20/adult and £3.60/age 5-18. You should bring a
pack lunch, waterproof jacket, sweater, and walking boots or shoes.
Several informational leaflets are on the back table for you to look
at. A sign-up sheet for the trip will be on the back table today and
next Lord’s Day. Philip will be booking the ferry after next Lord’s
Day so you must sign up by then.
The Reformed Witness Hour next Lord’s Day, 6
June, (8:30-9:00 AM, on Gospel 846MW) is "Prayer: God’s Answer for
Anxiety" (Philippians 4:6-7).
Last week’s offerings: £575.21.
