Thought for the Day by Phil Washington (BH Member)
Created by God
'Fearfully and wonderfully made' Psalm 139:13,14
Like any Christian parent and grandparent, I regularly pray for my family.
Two of my children are having babies this year and I've used this wonderful Psalm as a foundation for my prayers for them. Seeking God's blessing and protection upon the little ones that He is 'Knitting together' in the darkness, warmth and
'secret place' of the womb.
The psalmist basks in the truth of God's Omniscience (His all-knowingness) over each human life. 'You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body' (v13). 'My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth' (v15). 'Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them ever came to be' (v16). It is God who makes each precious little individual in the womb, weaving their unique body and character together.
Here God teaches the sanctity of life from conception through to death. It shouts an almighty NO to abortion, to euthanasia and to assisted suicide.
Unborn John the Baptist 'leaped for joy' in the womb of his mother when she heard Mary's greeting in Luke 1:44. He was alive and spiritually discerning three months before Elizabeth gave birth.
In case you wondered - baby No.1, the beautiful Hope, Jennifer, was born a few weeks ago, and baby No.2 is still being knitted by God!
Church Services on Sundays at BH.
Updated Church check-in procedure
From Monday 19 July 2021, at Bishop Hannington we are no longer legally required to ask customers, visitors and staff to “check in”. Although it isn’t a requirement, NHS Test and Trace have strongly encouraged us to retain our NHS QR code posters and maintain our “logbook” containing attendees’ contact details.
We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back on Sunday in line with “The BH Roadmap” which was published recently in the BH Bulletin and BH News.
In order to streamline the checking in procedure at the church door we recommend that attendees scan the NHS QR code poster (see above) which is the quickest and easiest way to register. Posters will be available at the entrance and outside the church. Please have your phones and the app switched on in advance of reaching the entrance for a quick scan! For those who don’t have the app you can give your details at the entrance.
The wearing of masks will be optional from this Sunday. The choice is yours. Sanitiser will still be available for the foreseeable future.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
