Words of Light and Hope for Trinity 14, Sunday 5th September
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will
remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36 26
In your Son Jesus Christ
You reveal your love for the world,
And by the grace of the Holy Spirit
You give us the strength to share His mission among our
neighbours and friends in this benefice:
Help us to grow in proclaiming your
Good news, drawing others to know you,
Serving our communities,
Promoting justice and peace
And sustaining the well-being
Of the life of the earth
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord Amen
“The Power of Love is greater than the Love of Power!” George Macleod
I remind myself that, as I sit here now,
God is gazing on me with love and holding me in being.
I pause for a moment and think of this.
Lord, guide me always
to do your holy will
knowing that your strength
will carry me through
Life is busy Lord
Often my best intentions are left undone.
But I know that you are with me in all I say and do,
And in everyone I meet with daily..
Words don’t come easily to me, Lord.
Look into my heart
and see my longing for peace.
Watch over me, Lord.
I know that you are always by my side. Sacred Space
Jesus did not come to explain away suffering or remove it.
He came to fill it with his presence. Paul Claudel
Never forget that you are utterly precious in God’s eyes!
He adores you…and longs for you to be filled with joy and peace! SP
“And You, Lord, are LOVE
When we kick You in the teeth,
Your sole concern is whether
we have stubbed our toes!!
