This week we continue our theme from Sunday of Holding Lightly To The Things Of This World - Transformed Not Conformed. Each day we develop the theme a little more in a short video.
Following the them of being a sacrifice.
Let’s Pray For Faculté Jean Calvin
Pray for this evangelical theological institute in France that has partnered with PCI for many years. Pray for the professors as they adapt to teaching online during restrictions.
Faculté Jean Calvin
Pray for the students learning online, that they would continue to benefit from their training, to be better equipped to share the gospel with those in search of purpose and meaning in the French-speaking world.

Wilma’s Thoughts On Tuesday
Wilma reports on the book’s progress.
“The circulation of the books has been a big undertaking. 1000 were printed. Please give thanks to God for His undertaking and guidance every step of the way and some amazing answers to prayer. To God be the Glory!
Give thanks for all who volunteered to help with the circulation, elders, church members, friends, family members etc . To date £3294 has been raised for Zomba Action Project, and money is still coming in, so this figure will rise.
Pray that all who read the book will not only be blessed and inspired but challenged.
I have 100 books remaining, some plan to use them as Christmas gifts, if anyone is interested please contact me .
York Minster is carrying out a £2 million refurbishment on their organ. Read about all the stages of the refurb here.
I always try to find books which I think may interest some of the Blog readers. I haven’t always read the books but they are usually by authors that I have read in the past. However, today I recommend a book by William Hanna who I do not recognise but the subject matter of the book is fascinating. William was an EU Diplomat, his father was a Presbyterian Minister but the book is about his grandfather who was a missionary in India. There was an article in the Belfast Telegraph last week. Voyages with my Grandfather by William D Hanna is published by Troubador.
The book is available on Amazon as paperback or Kindle
