During the past few days of the last theme "Follow Me" the Sanctuary First Community has been joining with Christians from all over the world praying for their families and their communities. They have been praying in a specific way, asking that God would reveal himself to family members and friends, so that those who are seeking faith might find it. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the Christian is called to bring others to faith.
The “Thy Kingdom Come Project” is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
In our readings this month we continue to reflect upon the Lord’s prayer and to seek to learn from it ways in which we can sustain our lives to be a witness to those who we love.
We began 2019 with this idea of Re-Imagining Church and went on to think about our friendships and our neighbourhoods, seeing them with fresh eyes. We then turned to behold the remarkable person of Jesus Christ and his life changing words, "Follow Me"!
So as we reach the halfway point of the year and with the words of Lord’s Prayer ringing in our ears, let’s continue to reimagine church with old and new friends, in our local neighbourhoods, beholding the man, following him and seeking to bring the Kingdom in!
