Learning and Caring Wk 4
Do our learning and caring shine out as beacons?
Led by Jonathan and Sean Hayes
John 14:26-27 I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you – Peace
Luke 12:12 When they drag you into their meeting places, or into police courts and before judges, don’t worry about defending yourselves—what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there. The Holy Spirit will give you the right words when the time comes
Og Mandino Author of “The Greatest Salesman in the World”
Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again
This week’s challenge
- How do people outside the church see us?
- What do people see when they just use our buildings?
- What do special events, like Easter and the Church Anniversary say to visitors?
- Where can I get help?
Nurturing God, for the gift of life so full of possibility
I give you my praise.
For your guiding of me thus far, through family and friends, teachers and educators, companions and mentors
I thank you.
As I remember some of those who have shaped me, and
reflect upon their work and character, I ask the help of your Spirit in understanding how I learn and grow. Amen
