This week’s thought for the week beginning 5th September: - 


You hear people say, ‘I’m not terribly religious’. But were the first followers of Jesus terribly religious?


What about Simon the Zealot, the freedom fighter? Zacchaeus, the tax collector who swindled innocent people? Simon Peter the rough spoken fisherman? Or the power-hungry brothers John and James, the ‘sons of thunder’? They were not terribly religious by any stretch of the imagination.


Jesus gathered many followers from the ranks of the ordinary people of his society, and really rather few from the ranks of the ‘religious’.
