Lent 2019

A personal Prayer for Lent

 

My gentle and loving Lord, I offer you my Lenten journey.

I offer You my daily prayers and sacrifices that this Lent will be holy, blessed and fruitful.

Enlighten me with your holy Word, that I may come to know You and to deepen the gift of faith in my life.  Keep me faithful to my Lenten promises, and bring forth new life through these sacrifices of love.

Blessed mother, Mary, you stood by your Son in his suffering and death, stand by me, I pray, as I journey through this life.  Pray for me and offer me to Your Son, that He may take me into His loving embrace.

Lord, Jesus, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me a sinner.  Amen

THE FIVE MARKS OF MISSION

  • Tuesdays at 7.30 pm in Holy Trinity Church, Horfield

 

  • This will be a discussion-based course on this significant Anglican initiative, which encourages us as Christian disciples to be active in using our gifts to help proclaim the Good News of the Gospel in our lives; to nurture and encourage other disciples; to be willing servants of one another; to make a stand on matters of social justice and to care responsibly for the earth’s precious resources.

 

  • We shall be using extracts from The Revd. Katharine Jefferts-Schori’s book, Gathering at God’s Table: The Meaning of Mission in the Feast of Faith.

 

  • Bishop Katharine was, for nine years, the Presiding (Archbishop) of the Anglican church in the USA.
