Prayer Resource #4

This prayer resource is offered in the hope that it will sustain you whilst we are worshipping in different places. Just because we are not gathering together in one place as we would usually do on a Sunday morning, it doesn’t mean we aren’t gathering together as a community of faith and prayer. This fourth edition contains new offerings written from members of our community and other offerings from other writers.

The Resilience Project

A few months ago, long before we had even heard of Covid-19, I watched a young man being interviewed on breakfast TV. I was so impressed I went out and bought his book which was equally impressive.  Hugh van Cuylenburg was a primary school teacher who spent 12 months volunteering and living at an underprivileged school in the Himalaya. He came to realise that despite the underprivileged community the children were from, they were remarkably positive. By contrast, back in…

An Unexpected Death

The phone rang one evening at home. “We would like you to go to Bahrain to work with the Vocational Education Sector within the Ministry of Education.” It was my friend Enzo. “Not so fast” I said. “I am retired.” Three weeks later I found myself reading the documentation provided to me before boarding a flight to Bahrain. Arriving in Bahrain I was met by the project manager and driven to my accommodation. Next day I was introduced to the…

Climate through COVID to Change

What do you love and hope never to lose to climate chaos? – a question posited during our Earth Hour on-line service. It is a powerful and potent question and the more so as we grapple with an invisible virus wreaking economic havoc and more desperately, taking the lives of hundreds of thousands across our world. No respecter of geographical borders or social class, its impact of grief and suffering is incomprehensible and wretchedly devastating. Our hearts writhe with the…
