I hope you had an opportunity to participate in the Women’s World Day of Prayer at your nearest venue. We have started our Lent course and both Northfield and Longbridge Members are joining in via zoom or by phone. I encourage you to join in this historic Lent course and fellowship.
I am so delighted to announce that Becky and Blayze were blessed with a baby girl, Darcey Rebel White. Both Becky and the baby are well and healthy. We thank God for the gift of this child.
The fourth Sunday in Lent is mothering Sunday and let us show love, gratitude and appreciation to all wonderful mums through acts of kindness and giving of gifts.
We continue to pray for Ukraine, Russia and all the countries involved, to find a peaceful solution to this problem.
A prayer by William
Be to us, O Christ, peace to the troubled mind and home to the wanderer. Be as living water for our cleansing, as the song that soothes our sadness, and as the inward voice that directs all our days. Amen.
