EASTER PREPARATION: OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH OUTSIDE THE CHURCH
 

I once spoke of praying as I drove down the motorway. There were a couple of comments I instantly received. “So do your passengers”, and “I hope you keep your eyes open while you are doing that”. Once our eyes are open we find ourselves engaged in a variety of activities whether it is reading a book, driving a car, watching television, having a meal, chatting with friends……..


Possibly the last thing on our mind at such a time is what we have said, sung, heard, in church. Yet surely the purpose of being in church is to help us live life outside it. So during Lent we will have sessions led by 5 different people whose aim will be to help us look through the stained glass of our faith at our life outside the church.
Thanks to our Roman Catholic friends at St Wulstan’s each week during Lent we will be meeting in their church Hall which is alongside the main church. The dates and times of the sessions have not yet been finalised with each of the speakers so watch this space.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER RISE,
TAKE YOUR MAT AND WALK

Women, men and children of all ages are called to ‘Rise, take up your mat and walk to join this year’s day of prayer. The women of Zimbabwe have prepared this year’s service and they encourage us to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued their country over many years. They share the challenges they have met and their hope for the future. They encourage us to ‘Rise, take up your mat and walk’ with them as they continue their often turbulent journey towards reconciliation. The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 170 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels through the world before finishing in American Samoa more than 36 hours later. Prayers will be offered all over the United Kingdom.

The World day of Prayer is on Friday March 6th
at :- St. Leonard’s at 2.00 pm St. Joseph’s at 7.30 pm

Please think of joining in prayer on this day and pray especially for the people of Zimbabwe. The country was in the news in the Autumn, suffering from soaring inflation and a crisis in its health services. The majority of the population are poor, unlike the elite, and so are badly affected.
