4 Corners Annual Service

 A reconciliation service to begin the last day of the festival with contributions from Steve Stockman, Martin Magill, Jim Deeds, Sara Cook and Elizabeth Hanna. A calm but strong call for a different future for our city. I could tell you what was in the service but why not listen for yourself. The service will be available here in the next 24 hours on this page as it was broadcast live on Radio Ulster.

Suffice to say that Steve talked about the vision of 4 Corners and Jeremiah’s call to bring peace and prosperity to the city. Martin Magill preached a powerful service of Jesus call to be reconciled and how it needs to go beyond the law. Fitzroy praise band were wonderful in guiding the worship. Sara and Jim shared some of the highlights of this year’s festival – How we have hosted hope in a dark time and Steve and Elizabeth prayed around the 4 corners of the city. Martin ended his homily with the phrase – “Go and be reconciled!” Steve ended the service with this benediction

 

God, give us faith to believe the truth

And the right to ask why

Give us joy in life’s fulfilment

And the right to cry

God give us the strength to carry others

And the right to wilt

Give us grace towards holiness

And the right to confess our guilt

Father show us a bigger picture

Jesus put grace notes in our song

Holy Spirit put us on a road that’s deeper

And more eternal than the one we’re on.

And the people of Belfast said AMEN.
