Weekly news for 26.3.23

Dear Friends

Please note info about Holy Week and our upcoming Annual meeting.

A little word

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.         2 Cor 4.7

Paul is speaking about his own frailty here, but as a passionate believer in the church and in every member ministry, it is legitimate to translate his image to us corporately as well as individually.

The church contains all the treasure the world needs, the love of God demonstrated and proclaimed, and yet we are fragile and error prone.

It is amazing that in his wisdom Christ entrusted his message and mission and kingdom to this institution! We acknowledge our mistakes, give thanks for each other, and look to him who can perfect us.

Things to pray for

  • Give thanks for the church, in all its complexity.
  • For places of continued conflict in the world.
  • For chaplaincy in prisons, hospitals, schools & workplaces.
