16 June 2019 - On Trinity Sunday, Matthew Dalling ask us "Are we joyful or are we grumpy?" The Bible calls us to a life of joy. The paradox is that this life is full of suffering. We all long for deep joy, but when suffering come, we instead close ourselves off. We rather need to confront suffering and understanding the suffering of Jesus. When we consider the suffering he endured for the joy set before him, we can then learn from him and so merge our joy with his. Readings: Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15
