A Fine But Cold Day, But Pickering is Packed with People.
Officially its 1943 and everyone is to dress appropriately!
An excellent opportunity to reach out and talk about the only lasting Peace Maker.
FIRST – SOME PICTURES:
If you can see yourself write a comment and we’ll send you information about finding peace with God.

Looking Down Market Place
While many reveled in the romance of the day, there were some who sought to speak of the reason men fight and the One who intervened to liberate man from its terrible grip.
Jas 4:1 Where do wars and fights come from among you?
Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members?
Many stopped to talk, listen, and face the terrible truth that man is at war with God until he is given grace to surrender and believe.
- Good news table.
The Home Guard
Nick Preached about the need to be rescued to an attentive audience.
Asking whether anyone on the beach at Dunkirk would refuse to get in a boat, he challenged all who heard about their refusal to be rescued by Jesus Christ.
“you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
The weather is good today, visitors are fewer, but there’s plenty of opportunity to talk about knowing God through Jesus Christ.

My main conversations today were with two separate young women .
The first one had no understanding of the Gospel, yet believed she ‘might’ meet God one day. Was she perfect? By her own admission she tried to be, but she knew she wasn’t.
Trouble is, God is perfect and His heaven is place for ‘perfect’ people.
Matthew 5:48 “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
I had the privilege of explaining that ‘perfection’ is God’s gift to those who hear and obey His Son:
Matthew 19:21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
You must choose between your possessions and Jesus Christ, otherwise you become just like the the young man referred to above.
Matthew 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
The other , a young mother, knew that the Gospels were in the New Testament, but knew nothing of its message.
She stood and talked, grappling with what she was hearing about her personal sin and her need of a personal Saviour, she eventually gave way to her young man who insisted on leaving.
Reminds me of Felix when Paul sought to teach him the Truth.
Ac 24:25 Now as he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, “Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you.”
