On Beside The Burn this week, we turn to Daniel and find out how we can find blessing as we live a second choice life.
Join me each week-day for a short devotional video including a bible reading and prayer to encourage us as we enter 2022.
This is an excellent retelling of the story of Daniel, explaining how the various kings fit into the story. I highly recommend watching it. It lasts about an hour and a half and I will include the link each day this week so that you can watch it a section at a time if you don’t have time for the whole film. A higher quality version is available with a Amazon Prime subscription or can be rented from Amazon for £1.99.
Let’s Pray For Social Witness
The New Year can be especially difficult for those with mental health problems. Give thanks for volunteers who staff helplines at this demanding time of year. Give thanks too for resources and television campaigns that promote the importance of seeking help and of talking through issues.
Preparations are underway for PCI Talks Education at Assembly Buildings on Saturday 29 January. Give thanks for all those across PCI who serve in various roles in the education sector, and pray that this morning would provide an opportunity to encourage and envision all those involved.
The General Council is the most representative body within PCI after the General Assembly. Pray for its convener, the Very Rev Dr Noble McNeely, giving thanks for his wise leadership. Pray for its significant work in coordinating the activities of all its Councils, in addition to making responses on major issues which arise during the year.
Council for Training in Ministry
Licentiates, or assistant ministers, are placed in congregations to continue their training ‘on the job’. An important part of this is supervision by the minister of the congregation. Pray for these ministers as they meet to be trained in this vital role on Thursday 27 January. Pray for Professor David Leach as he leads this.
The Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI) announced on Thursday the names of four ministers that will go before the Church’s 19 regional presbyteries on 1 February, when they meet to select the all-Ireland denomination’s next Moderator.
