Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
Well, it’s begun, and if you’re reading this on Friday morning, we’re roughly 36 hours into lockdown #2.
What should we do? As the church, what should we do? The answer should be obvious: nothing different to before. Just pray, because we’re commanded (yes, commanded) in 1Thessalonians 5:17 “…pray continually…” not meaning that we never sleep, but that praying should be one of our characteristic and unending contributions to society.
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the Bishop of London wrote to all the clergy of the CofE on Monday urging us to fast and pray. I’d like to ask you to join me. Here’s (a small) part of what they said:
“During this second lockdown we invite you to fast in a way appropriate to you as well as pray for our nation every Thursday, for its leaders, its health and essential services and all those who suffer.”
But let’s make that every day, praying for our nation, every day during Lockdown and beyond. We have two weeks of prayer coming up: one organised by the SGP from 22-28 Nov and then our own the next week. It’s a bit of a theme isn’t it? We’ll let you have more details of the prayer weeks, but in the meantime, let’s fast and “…pray continually”.
