bibleThis week Rev. Dr. Keith Clements joins us all the way from the UK to talk about traditions in church:

How do you feel about tradition in the Church? Is it something you object to? Or on the other hand something comforting? Are they boring, tired and irrelevant old customs? Or tried and tested guidelines for our journeying in faith?

Discipleship means following Jesus, and Jesus himself got into trouble because of his own attitude to accepted religious traditions. He didn’t reject them completely but he warned that sometimes they can get in the way of our obedience to God here and now. In a fast-changing world Jesus invites us to explore in faith how, what matters above all, is loving God and others – and to look at our traditions in that light. There could be surprises in store!
