FROM THE GATEWAY GROUP:

From 31st October, we're inviting the congregation to make pledges to help the planet in honour of COP 26. There will be the opportunity to make these pledges in the hall after the service. Gateway group will have ideas to help and there are some pledges from us on the Eden panels too. Pledge-making will culminate in the co-creation of a fair-trade Christmas cake in the hall on 14th November (an early Stir Up Sunday).

COP26: Prayer from Gateway #1. Inspired by the Dawn of Creation panel in church.

Lord, help us to find peace among the chaos, solitude among a busy, loud world.

Let us create and give hope to those who need it. Amen.

 

THE STORY OF CREATION

You will see, displayed around the church, four painted canvass panels.  These were painted by Flossie Victory as backdrops for the recently staged musical play, Eden, here at Holy Trinity. On the North Wall:  Order out of Chaos, the dawn of Creation.  On the South Wall: The Garden of Eden.  Note how the bottom third of the painting depicts the colourful world God gave us; the middle third shows the way we have treated that gift; the blank top third invites us to imagine what we have to do to restore the world to its God-created glory. On the left of the High Altar, is a depiction of the Tree of Knowledge, our fragility and fallen state needed a “second Adam” – Jesus – to redeem us.  On the right, are the Rivers of Eden, cascading as the waters of Baptism to give us new birth and new life in Christ. Let us meditate upon them, as we prepare prayerfully for the COP26 gathering of nations in Glasgow.
