This morning we celebrate Jesus’ Ascension and then turn again towards Pentecost. And I believe that the invitation to each of us individually, and together as church, is still to prepare and to ask to receive the Holy Spirit again and more…
You might like to know that Bishop Richard was pleased to join us for “Listen in Worship” - for the Sermon and James and Miriam’s singing last Sunday!
At the moment we are also invited by the Archbishop of Canterbury and our Bishops to be part of Thy Kingdom Come 2020.
“Join the global wave of prayer calling all Christians to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know the love and peace of Jesus Christ. May 21st - May 31st 2020”
Praying for people to come to know the love, hope and peace found in Christ is at the heart of Thy Kingdom Come. Could you hold these people in prayer - including them in your morning and evening prayers? Or quite simply, could you commit to saying the Lord’s Prayer at a particular time each day… praying “Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven”.
Do remember that there are Zoom meetings for our usual Community Cafes on Tuesdays at 10.30 so that we can socialise as usual. If you would like to be sent an invitation / the link please let me know.
I am sure we are all hoping and praying for the time when we can safely throw the doors open once again. In the meantime please do let us know if you need prayers, or if there is anything else we can do for you.
Be safe, keep well
God bless you, and have a good week.
