ST MICHAEL’S COMMUNITY UPDATE
No 2: 22.3.20 Mother’s Day

  • Introduction
    During the present situation we intend to send out an email letter with news, a thought for the day, medical advice and an ‘always look on the bright side’ item.
  • If you want to be removed from this mailing list please let me know.
  • If you have a friend or neighbour who would like to receive this please forward their details.
  • If you are able and willing to print these and deliver to someone living nearby without email can you please let me have their names so that I know they are included.
  • I also invite you to send in items, but I expect to be swamped, so it may be some time before your item is included.
  • For all correspondence please use office@stmbsands.org

Shopping
Please see attached list of following local companies who run delivery.

Next week we are planning to launch a shopping delivery service for those who are self-isolating and have no family or friends to do this for them. Watch this space.

Thought for Mother’s Day
The Bible usually refers to God in masculine terms as Father. However, there are a few occasions when God is referred to in the feminine. For example:-

Isaiah 66:13 God as a comforting mother
God: “As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”

Isaiah 49:15 God compared to a nursing mother
God: “Can a woman forget her nursing child, or show no compassion for the child of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.”

Matthew 23:37 God as a Mother Hen
Jesus: “How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!”

On Mother’s Day and particularly in this time of need it’s good to know that God has all these qualities and we can depend on them.

Prayer resources

This coming week we will be providing some written prayer resources for members of the congregation.
 

For those who are on line.
1.The Archbishop of Canterbury has posted a great ‘Exploring Prayer’ course on Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/archbishopofcanterbury/

2.At this time when many are feeling isolated because regular activities have closed, try a regular pattern of prayer through the day using the pattern at https://www.churchof england.org/faith-action/everyday-prayers

3.Lectio365 is a great reflective prayer resource. Take a look at https://www.24-7prayer.com/dailydevotinal

Songs of Praise
Bev says BBC1 Sunday at 1.15pm is about the work of the Mothers’ Union.

Light a Candle

The Archbishops are encouraging us all to light a candle and place it in our windows at 7 pm on Sunday 22nd ‘as a sign of solidarity and hope in the light of Christ that can never be extinguished’.

A prayer to use when lighting the candle

Dear Lord, for all that is good in life, thank you,
For all the love of family and friends, thank you,
For all the kindness of neighbours, thank you,
May those who are vulnerable, hungry, or homeless be given support,
May those who are sick, know healing,
Bless and guide political leaders and decision-makers with wisdom,
Bless and guide health workers and key workers with good health,
Bless and guide each one of us as we adapt to a new way of living.
A may the light shining from our windows,
Be reflected in our hearts, hands and hopes.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

 

 

Together we will get through this.
