Weekly News – w/c 16th July

PLEASE PRAY with thanks for the perseverance and bravery of all those involved in the rescue of the boys and their coach from the flooded caves in Thailand, and for the family and friends of the Navy Seal who lost his life. Sometimes we are called to put others before ourselves, whatever the consequence. Help us to be brave and to persevere.

READ THE GOOD NEWS – Mark 6, 14-­29 – God gave us a conscience. Let us pray that we are able to listen to it and act upon it, even if that means not going along with the crowd.

Weekly News – w/c Mon 9th July

PLEASE PRAY for all those who work in our National Health Service as we celebrate its 70th birthday. Borrowing some words published this week by the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity Romans 13:7 says: ‘Give to everyone what you owe them: if you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honour, then honour.’ Paying taxes is an intrinsic part of discipleship, not only because it’s a legal requirement, but because in the UK our taxes are used to meet the needs of the sick, the dying, the very young, the elderly, and the disabled – care of whom is a mark of true faith (James 2:14-17). May we gladly pay our taxes as a mark of true faith to show our love for our neighbour.

READ THE GOOD NEWS – Mark 6, 1-­13
Jesus found it was challenging to be a prophet and teaching amongst his own people. Help us to find a way to share your Good News for all people in places where we can be heard.
