There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up with Everybody blaming Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!

From The Messenger, January 1990

Dear All,


God calls and God continues to call. God calls us from one thing to the next, from one place to the next and I wonder where God is calling us as I join the team and we seek to answer this call together? I am Mark Robinson and I grew up very much aware of the challenges and joys of what it means to be followers of Christ, because both my parents were keen to see that their six children had an understanding of this truth.

radioWhat are your gifts?
How do you share them?
Sometimes we think our gifts are too humdrum to be much use to other people, but this is just not true.

Look again at these well-known verses from 1 Corinthians 12 in
“The Message” version:
“You are Christ’s body—that’s who you are! You must never forget this. Only as you accept your part of that body does your “part” mean anything. You’re familiar with some of the parts that God has formed in his church, which is his “body”:
Apostles, prophets, teachers, miracle workers, healers, helpers, organizers, those who pray in tongues.”
