Marketplace Chaplains Europe CEO Jonathan Martin preached yesterday evening at St Peter’s Church, Parkstone in Poole.
During the traditional choral evensong service, the Reverend Canon asked the question whether or not we treasure Christ’s love for us enough? He warned of the danger of becoming complacent in our church buildings and spoke of an example of a Romanian priest who worried about his congregations becoming too comfortable.
One particularly poignant moment came at the beginning of the sermon, when Jonathan Martin asked one of the youngest members of the church choir directly to let him know if, in a hundred and forty years from now, the building in which he sung would still be standing.
Often it would seem that we only react when it is too late.
