Dear Friends

Join in worship at 10:30 am this Sunday. There are still some nasty germs around; Covid, flu and colds. Over the past few weeks some of our congregation have been stricken with one or the other. Please be careful and take the usual protective measures. If you feel unwell or are uncomfortable coming to church, please join our Zoom as you are able.

My mask protects you and your mask protects me.

A Prayer for Ukraine:

God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment, and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all we pray for your precious children, that you would hold and protect them. 

We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, Amen (Archbishop Justin Welby)

We intentionally uphold in prayer the various crises in our world, that the Lord would redeem our brokenness through His love and bring healing to our world.   May we remain mindful of the struggles and the conflicts in our own country and pray for wisdom in resolving them.

Let us continue to pray for the post-flood restoration work in BC and particularly for the ministry of Christ Church, Hope, B.C, and also in Hay River, Northwest Territories.

In our prayers this week let us give thanks for our many blessings, and continue to pray for our neighbours, friends and family.

“The Christian vocation is to be in prayer, in the Spirit, at the place where the world is in pain, and as we embrace that vocation, we discover it to be the way of following Christ, shaped according to his messianic vocation to the cross, with arms outstretched, holding on simultaneously to the pain of the world and to the love of God.
Paul, we should note carefully, is quite clear about one thing: as we embrace this vocation,  the prayer is likely to be inarticulate. It does not have to be a thought-out analysis of the problem and the solution. It is likely to be simply a groan, a groan in which the Spirit of God, the Spirit of the crucified and risen Christ, groans within us, so that the achievement of the cross might be implemented afresh at that place of pain…”
― N.T. Wright, The Challenge of Easter
