We have so much to be grateful to God for in spite of all the uncertainties in our world at present. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
The days are getting shorter and it’s getting colder and Jesus is still the Light of the world that never fades.
As you know, we are now in an MMU (Mission and Ministry Unit – that is the working title for now) with St Ann’s and St Edmunds both in Chingford. We will be working together on different projects and the first one will be thinking about the environment and looking after God’s world. No one would have failed to witness the passion of the young sixteen year old Greta Thunberg who addressed the United Nations recently on climate change and wanting everyone to do their best so that our world will be able to sustain us and our needs and the needs of future generations when we’re no longer around. We will be having a half day meeting on 15th February 2020 so put this advanced notice date in your diary. The youngsters are leading the way and campaigning for a more sustainable earth and using the world’s resources wisely and equitably.
Pray for our working relationship that God’s name will be glorified as we seek to serve him together and that the congregations will embrace, value and be encouraged in this new phase in church ministry and Jesus Christ’s mission.
There are several things happening in the next few months that we can all participate in. We want to support, help, pray for and encourage Worth Unlimited who work with disadvantaged and lonely young people in our community. They will be having a quiz evening that we are hosting on Saturday 9th November 7-30 until 10pm with refreshments. Tickets £10.
The harpist, Lucy Bunce, will be doing a Christmas concert here on Saturday 7th December here from 6-45 with refreshments also.
We need to continue to pray for our nation during this time of uncertainty and the future. Pray that our government will do the right thing that will be beneficial for all of us and that they will deal with one another with humility, gentleness and understanding as they sort out Brexit with truthfulness and patience.
Let us make time and space to spend with the Lord so that he can guide and help us rest in him because he loves and cares for us.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and for ever.
God be with you and yours as you seek his face.
