This week we continue our theme from Sunday of ‘Holding Lightly’. Each day we develop the theme a little more in a short 5 minutes video.
You can listen to the message from Sunday below or the whole service by clicking here.
Let’s Pray For Lebanon
PCI partners with the Near East School of Theology, which trains pastors and church workers
for ministry in the Middle East. Pray for NEST’s work as they continue to minister and rebuild following extensive damage caused to their building by the Beirut explosion.
Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary trains and equips students to serve the Church in the Middle East and North Africa. Pray for JETS, for health and protection for staff and students and that they would remain effective in ministry training despite Covid-19 restrictions.
In his closing weekly service of worship for the whole Presbyterian Church in Ireland for a while, Presbyterian Moderator, Rt Rev Dr David Bruce, ends his journey through the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. Today, he explores the theme, ‘A praying church’.
Recorded in Belfast in Assembly Building’s Weir Chapel, Dr Bruce looks at Ephesians 6:18-24. In his concluding service, in this particular series, he looks at how Paul encourages the church to pray, and in doing so, shows them how to do it. At the same time, the Moderator explains why it is an essential and nourishing part of the Christian life.
An uncomfortable Christmas (25 minute video)
In two months time it will be Boxing Day, who knows what Christmas will have looked like, but we start early with this video from UCB.
Have you ever felt like your life has been taken over by events outside your control? It’s something that people can feel quite strongly, heading into Christmas, as other people seem to be getting ready to celebrate. Well, if you’re in that place, where events beyond your control have taken over your life, you’re not the only one.
Are you anxious about heading into the Christmas holidays? Christmas can be an uncomfortable season, especially after everything that has happened in 2020. But know this: you're not alone. Listen to this encouraging message from @bernidymet on UCB Player.
Over the weekend we had some high winds and some high tides in Portstewart. Here are some photos and video from Saturday. Notice the car abandoned on the beach, despite the National Trust making several announcements warning people of the incoming tide, and yes that is someone going in for a swim.
