This week Fr Martin Magill makes a welcome return with a post about his latest adventures in ‘ecumenical tithing.’ He dropped into the Shankill Gospel Hall after noticing its open door when he was out cycling. He describes a number of new experiences, and being given a gift of a King James Version bible after the service.

He then spoke about time and eternity and the need to be saved if we have not already been saved – the time was now, the time was getting short.
I found it interesting that he also spoke about God’s mercy – this was very poignant because for Roman Catholics, this was Divine Mercy Sunday and on the previous evening in Rome, Pope Francis had been giving details of a special Holy Year of Mercy.
As I was leaving, I was presented with a large array of books and leaflets, including my own King James Translation of the Bible.
