At St Barnacles we are thinking a lot at the moment about what it means to be the light of the world. It is relatively easy to shine with the light of Jesus Christ when we are gathered together in worship and fellowship, but what about when we go out into our daily lives? How can we best support and encourage one another Monday to Friday, and know that we in turn are loved and prayed for by others?
That is why you will find some slips of paper at the back of church with three little questions:
- Where do you usually spend your week from Monday to Friday?
- How does your Christian faith help you day by day?
- How can the church family best pray for you?
If we have enough replies, then we will publish the replies on our church website as our Lent initiative this year. So please do think and pray about your answers, and hand them to Revd Tim, with your name on! The more we can encourage one another, the more we will able to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).
Our Mission Action Plan has as one of its three aims, “being in the wider world, as servants of the Lord, wherever we are.” My hope and prayer is the answers you give will enable us to meet that aim more and more, and make our witness for the Lord Jesus even more effective. I look forward to hearing from you!
