Why am I so sad? Why am I so troubled? I will put my hope in God, and once again I will praise him, my saviour and my God. - Psalm 42:11
We are in the season of Lent which encourages us to prepare for the Easter celebration. It is a time for reflection and self-examination. Because the Easter message is all about hope for the world, our challenge to everyone is not so much “what are you giving up for Lent?” Rather it is “To whom can I bring hope?” Every Sunday morning our service will have the theme “Hope Changes Everything – In Christ there is always hope!”
Readings for this week’s meditation: Luke 12:22-34; Psalm 42; John 14:1-6; 25-27
The Baptist Union Executive held their meetings next week at the Athlone Baptist church this week. Much of the meetings was a discussion over the future of the ministry of the BU. As our society is changing so we need to be always able to adapt to be effective in ministry. Please pray for the leaders of the BU.
Pray for the ministry of Loaves and Fishes (the home for the homeless in Salt river) They had their annual celebration this week with those in their ministry who have been alcohol and drug free for a year!
