Message from St Mochta's Church
Some people think that if you have enough faith life
will be plain sailing for you. But this is not so.
The fact that we can swim doesn’t prevent us from being knocked about the waves. In the same way faith doesn’t shield us from the hard knocks of life or death. What, then, does faith do? It gives us bearings and thus enables us to live in a topsy-turvy world without giving in to despair. Just as swimmers trust that if they don’t panic, and if they do a few simple things, then the power of the sea will uphold them, so believers entrust their lives to a power greater than themselves, a power greater than us all. This power is the power of God, who brought his Son, Jesus, back from the dead.
