It’s a kind of a strange question, isn’t it?
Who is ‘Him’ anyway? Why is it all written as one word? And what is a #?
Well, the ‘Him’ is Jesus. The rest we’ll leave for another time. They’re not that important. Certainly not compared to the first question.
Do you know Him?
You may well know him. Or you may know something about him.
You might know an awful lot about him like he was born at Christmas and died at Easter, that he was nice to people and had a beard and wore sandals.
Perhaps the only time you encounter ‘Jesus Christ’ is when you hear someone saying it in exasperated response to something.
Perhaps you knew about him once and have moved away from him. After all, people do grow apart, don’t they? Maybe this happened to you and Jesus.
Maybe you have been a church regular for years but you’ve never asked this one fundamental question we all need to ask…
…do you know Him?
Following on from an idea from the church in Skipton, here in Ramsbottom we are exploring more about this question between February and April this year.
There are a whole load of things planned, both in churches and out and about in Rammy and the surrounding area to help you get to know Jesus more or for the first time.
The events page will be filling up over the next few weeks with opportunities to come and discover more. More about who Jesus is, more about the impact he has made and more about how he is still very active today.
In the churches there are weekly themes on different facets of Jesus’ mission and character, which you’ll also see on the ‘Themes’ link above.
