Weekly News – w/c 24 June

PLEASE PRAY that wherever we find ourselves this week, we are encouraged to talk about Jesus even when it might be difficult or controversial to do so. Pray that we have the confidence to live in such a way that makes no sense unless Jesus is alive. And leave the rest to God.
(inspired by Nell Goddard’s blog for London Institute for Contemporary Christianity, 17/6/19)

READ THE GOOD NEWS: Luke 8, 26-39
Our chains and demons are no more when we commit to listening to and trusting Jesus.
