  • Christ has come, the light shines on

    God of hope, we come to you in the season of Advent and to give you thanks for the hope you offer us. The world at the moment is a frightening place, but as our faith always shows us - we are not alone - that light of Christ is always before us.

    At this time of the year, we anticipate the birth of your Son and celebrate the life of the prophet. As John the Baptist was sent to prepare the way for Jesus, let us now prepare ourselves by remembering John’s fiery words and ringing challenge. For he is the messenger and we need to be reminded to prepare ourselves again for a new birth.

    Look! A star is shining there,
    See the stable stark and bare,
    Christmas dawns, all darkness gone,
    Christ has come, the light shines on.

    Libby

  • Traidcraft Sales

    A Message from Muriel

     As the usual Christmas Fairs, Coffee mornings etc cannot take place this year I will not be able to display and sell  Traidcraft goods in this way. I do however want to sell as many products as I possibly can.

    I would like you to look at the www.traidcraftshop.co.uk website  on-line and consider buying some of their goods. Send your orders to me at must49@uwclub.net or text or phone your order to me on 07593782128. I am sending orders regularly and delivery is usually within a week and of course you won't have to pay postage and packing. If you cannot access the website I do have copies of the catalogue available.

    We are living in difficult times but I know that many of you would normally buy some of these products. It doesn't need to be a big order  ---- think of the impact we could have if we all bought just one item.

    Thank you

  • Coronavirus prayer for God’s intervention and protection

     

    Dear Creator of the World,

    We come before you asking your mercy on us to halt the spread of the coronavirus. 

    We pray for those already infected with coronavirus that they may receive prompt, effective and compassionate medical care that will restore them to health.

    We pray your protection and grace for all medical professionals who are courageously treating those infected with coronavirus.  May they be shielded, strengthened and guided as they administer healing treatments and care. 

    We pray your protection over those most vulnerable to disease, for our babies, our children, our elders, our poor, disabled and those weakened by other health conditions.

    We pray for those under quarantine that they might be comforted by your presence and protected from disease, anxiety and fear.   

    We pray for our public healthcare leaders and government agencies that they might be informed and well prepared as they deal with the coronavirus.  Grant them the resources and manpower they need to use their wisdom in the best interest of public health.

    We pray for the researchers who are tracking the course of the coronavirus.  May they uncover patterns that will help us understand how to stay healthy. 

    We pray for those searching for treatments, cures and vaccines.  May you guide them, reveal new ideas and accelerate their discoveries to fight this disease. 

    We pray for the communities, areas and countries hardest hit by coronavirus.  Restore their sense of wellbeing and community.  Sustain them, comfort them and give them hope. 

    We pray for all whose lives are disrupted by the coronavirus.   We pray for families who have been separated and for those whose livelihoods have been jeopardized.    

    We look to you, Oh God, praying that the spread of the coronavirus will be halted and that many lives might be spared.

    We pray that through this crisis you may draw us closer to you, grow our compassion and increase our knowledge.

    Thank you that you are the Great Physician who not only heals us but who is a a very present help in our time of need as the Bible tells us that you “Took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.”  (Matthew 8 :17 NIV)

    Thank you for hearing our prayer.

    Amen.

    Karen Barber    February 27 2020
