A prayer for God’s Presence

May the love of God surround me

the peace of God infuse me

the grace of God travel with me

this day, and my life through.

 

 

Thought for the week…

Rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains in righteousness. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before. — Joel 2:23

“The prayers go up and the blessings come down…” The words to this children’s song are only half right, because God sends his blessings many times even when we don’t pray. But just as we love the special smell that comes with a drought breaking rain, God loves the aroma of his children’s joy, especially when he is the source of its delight!

Green Sparks are an ecumenical environmental group which was formed in July 2016, with their first meeting taking place in September.
Anyone is free to join!
The group will work alongside other local groups with environmental aims, such as REAP (Roundhay Environment Action Project).
Their objectives will focus around campaigning on environmental issues, promoting active projects from Christian Aid, Operation Noah and Climate Coalition amongst others, also in educating the local community on sustainability, waste reduction, energy efficiency and how the impacts of climate change can affect our natural environment.
The group’s first activity will be the Environment Afternoon on Saturday 4th February.
Full details can be found here.

 

Inspiration in the inbox

Daily Devotions from the United Reformed Church will start on the first Sunday of Advent (27 November) and continue throughout the year. Each day, a reading, reflection and short prayer, written by one of 85 writers from different places and perspectives in the URC, will arrive in your inbox. Over 750 people have signed up to receive the free Daily Devotion service so far. See here, to add your name. Andy Braunston, who is coordinating the project, said: ‘Many people read them on their phone whilst commuting or they might offer a time of quiet in the midst of the day.’
