Trinity 1 2020
Something to think about
I’ve told you one of my favourite bible verses, what’s yours and why?
What does it feel like when Jesus says, “You are my friend if you do what I command you”?
What do you think Jesus is commanding you to do?
What do you think Jesus is commanding St. Mary’s to do?
We have seen lots of acts of hatred this last week, do you allow these acts to get in the way of you loving your neighbour?
Does your faith help/hinder you when you see such evil?
In what way could you respond to such evil?
The Collect for Barnabas the Apostle
Bountiful God, giver of all gifts
who poured your Spirit upon your servant Barnabas
and gave him grace to encourage others;
help us, by his example,
to be generous in our judgements
and unselfish in our service;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
This was given to me many years ago when I was on a retreat at Offa House. My copy is in the form of a scroll with illustrations but the words are the same.
