Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Have you ever noticed how hard it is to say sorry or to admit that we were wrong. It seems that the word ‘sorry’ somehow gets stuck in our throat. We know we need to say it but it just won’t come. And we see it at all levels of society – politicians won’t admit they were in the wrong, spouses refuse to apologise to each other and even children struggle to say ‘sorry’. 

We don’t like saying it but we all know how that little word can restore relationships, rebuild trust and bring people back together. I wonder who might need to hear ‘sorry’ this week?

This Sunday We head back to the Psalms today to Psalm 51. Here’s a song in which David, the King of Israel, admits his guilt and sin before God. I wonder what it might have to teach us.

Mainly Music this coming Wednesday. Meets every Wednesday from 10.00am during term time. If you have small children feel free to join us.

Small Groups are meeting again. Contact the church if you would like to join one.

Oh and for those who are unable to join us we will still have an on-air service for you @10.30am and again @ 8pm on Thursday evening on Coast Access Radio 104.7FM or you can livestream at
