SOMETHING TO THINK AND PRAY ABOUT THIS WEEK
‘The Spirit of the Lord shall rest on him’ Isaiah 11:1–10
Things do not always work out the way we picture them. As Christians, we interpret this within the providence of God and seek to follow where we believe Christ leads. I would add to that a belief that where we take steps that are found later to have been clearly wrong, our Lord can and does call us from there into a new place. Such is his love for us that, no matter what, it never fails. Somehow, Life with Christ demonstrates this; redirection, when it comes, though we may think of it like the recalibration of a sat-nav, is more akin to a friend walking with us, sometimes gently guiding and occasionally bringing us up sharply to see our error.
Excerpted from Journeying to the Light: Daily Readings through Advent and Christmas by John Mann (p.9)
We Remember At This Time…
We pray for peace in our world; we especially pray for peace in the Middle East. As we pray, we remember those who have lost their lives and those who live in fear for their lives. May compassion and understanding triumph over hatred and violence. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
