The Cockcrofts recently celebrated their Silver Anniversary.
Rev Cockcroft began by relating how, as a little girl, she didn't always appreciate having to go to church but that a consolation was the central heating pipe running through the pew that allowed her to "toast her toes".
Beginning by displaying a print of Albrecht Durer's, "Praying Hands" Lena challenged us to consider whether the impression we make on those we meet on a day-to-day basis is that we take our faith for granted or that our faith is something of value to us.
You can listen to Rev Cockcroft's sermon again here:
The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.
Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls, who having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Matthew 13: 44-46
