Adult Forum, Sundays at 9:00 am:
February 18th – March 25th Adult Forum: At The Right Rev Bishop Michael Hanley’s request, churches of the Diocese are to focus on prayer during the season of Lent. Bishop Michael’s invitation comes out of the theme for the diocese in 2018, “Unity in the Love of Christ.” Of it Bishop Michael says, “A good scripture verse to go with this theme might be John 13:35:
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
Unity, however, does not come to us by each of us agreeing with one another; our unity is found in the love of God in Christ.
Another scripture that comes to mind as we live out this theme is John 6:27:
Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For it is on him that God the Father has set his seal.
Prayer has the capacity to unify us in Christ beyond our differences so that we may be about God’s work in the world.”
We will explore the use and practical meaning and types of prayer. We will compose a short prayer each Sunday, reflecting our needs, hopes and concerns for the world at that moment
