United Benefice e-pistle

11th June 2017  

‘Dedication Festival’

Then Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves. Matthew 21 v12

Thought for the Week: ‘The Rededication of St. Mary Farnham Royal’

On Sunday 11th June, The Bishop of Oxford, the Rt Rev Dr Steven Croft will rededicate St. Mary Farnham Royal following the completion of the reordering works. It will be a time to give thanks for what has been achieved and a time to look forward with fresh optimism and energy for the Gospel. It is a time to assess our priorities as God’s people and make use of the opportunities and resources that He has provided. It is worth reflecting on Matthew 21 v12 and pray through what attitudes and practices that Jesus would overthrow and drive out from our buildings. Jesus was passionate about his prayer and worship. What are you passionate about?

Pray:

Ø  For an end to terrorism and for courage to face the world with confidence in the Gospel.

Ø  To strengthen our spiritual pathways through prayer and through trusting in the Lord’s providence.

Ø  For Christians serving the Lord in tough places -especially for Christians in Egypt, Pakistan & Syria.

Ø  For peace in our world – especially in the Middle East.
