Thought for The Day – The Complete Gospel of Matthew

Hi Everyone, A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to thought for the day. I have really valued all the different voices we were able to hear. I've collated together all the the reflections into one document. It's a bit of a monster (just shy of 300 pages!) but I've added a table of contents and some links to help navigate it. Please feel free to use them as a reading guide for Matthew, or dip into them whenever you are in need of some insight. Once again, thank you all for the hard work you've put in over the past year. Many blessings, David http://www.grantonchurch.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Thought-for-the-Day-Complete-version.pdf ...
