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.
After the service on Sunday when we were holding Lightly to the things of this world, Betty reminded me of this hymn and especially verse five.
The dearest idol I have known,
whate'er that idol be,
help me to tear it from Thy throne
and worship only Thee.
Let’s Pray For Forces chaplaincy
Pray for the staff of the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Centre, who have a pivotal role in developing chaplains across all three Services (Royal Navy, Army, Air Force). Military chaplaincy is a vital ministry; please pray for parish ministers considering God’s call to this ministry.
PCI has 11 ministers currently serving the Forces. Pray for Rev Colin Jones who has recently returned to Chaplaincy service, for strength to cope with the pace of life at the frontline. Pray also for chaplains’ families, as chaplaincy often requires prolonged service away from home.
The New City Catechism On Tuesday
A New Catechism to help us understand the foundations of our faith.
How Many Persons Are There in God?
There are three persons in the one true and living God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
The latest edition of the Podcast is available and it is a challenging episode considering how congregations can become involved in Global mission. Taking part this week is Pamela McCullough whose husband David came along to PW last year to talk about their time as Global Mission Workers in Malawi
As global disciples, we are all called to go deeper and wider in our relationship and involvement in what God is doing in other parts of the world. How do we grow the roots of a relationship overseas and how might we become more involved in appropriate ways?
Pamela McCullagh (Annalong congregation) and Neil Harrison (PCI's Mission Development Officer) joined Rick Hill to consider what has worked in developing global mission involvement for congregations and Global Mission Workers.
I was reminded of this song by Bangor Band, Rend Collective when it featured on Tides on Friday.
