Thought for the week....
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God and God in him. 1 John 4 v 16
God loves you so much that He'll accept you just the way you are - but He loves you too much to leave you that way!
Monthly Prayer Theme
May 2019 Prayer theme ‘All are Welcome’
How can we follow Jesus' example of love and self-giving for the sake of others
today? How can we seek to welcome and offer grace to others in Christ's name? If
the death of Jesus tells us anything, it is that God was willing to give everything
out of love for us. The best way to receive this love is to share it with others.
Dear God our prayer is that we shall emulate Jesus’ example - that our church
will increasingly become a place of welcome and embrace for all people,
irrespective of gender, colour, ethnicity, sexuality or accent - that will show a
different way to a world, now so divided across so many different lines. Help us to
become more hospitable, to open the doors of our hearts to you, to find more ways
in which we can open the doors of Park Avenue to all people. Teach us to be
holy, to reach out to all those who have been created and loved by you.
With the permission of Reverend Romeo Pedro taken from his Good Friday message at the end of the
Walk of Witness.
