Thankyou Bruce for today’s msg. You explained this with such understanding and clarity.
Yes the rules as a young person and a convert to the Catholic church I stood outside all my cousins weddings What a dreadful rule but I was a rule keeper. Today I would never do that as I realise God Loves Anglicans the same as Catholics and everyone else regardless.

Great job Bruce!!! You can have as much of Jesus as you desire! Praying without ceasing throughout the day, including Him in all we do makes the day so much brighter! Have a blessed day!

Thank you Bruce. Have a Blessed Friday
