In this week's reflection, we are urged to care for the poor.
Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
On Tuesday 29 May, the Uniting Church in Australia started 40 days of prayer to lead up to the 15th Assembly meeting, which will take place in Melbourne from 8-14 July, 2018. This week’s reflection features the first and second of these prayers (29 & 30 May).
Prayer One – We Journey Together
We journey together towards our Assembly.
We give thanks for God’s abundant grace and we are set free with the liberating hope of Jesus.
Today, take a moment to think about your journey in the Uniting Church:
- When did it begin?
- Where has it taken you?
- What keeps you present?
Prayer Two – You Are the Body of Christ
Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. – 1 Corinthians 12:27
Stand as you are, in your body. Breathe.
Know that you are part of a great body of hope journeying together towards Assembly.
Know that you are connected. Breathe.
