Sunday ‘Spiritual Communion’ Week 2

Dear Friends in Chebsey and Norton Bridge, Ellenhall, Ranton, Seighford with Creswell and Great Bridgeford,

Attached is a service of ‘Spiritual Communion’ and a reflection on the Gospel reading for this Sunday. Please do print out and use the liturgy, prayers and reflection tomorrow if you would like to. The hope is that our shared spiritual journey through Lent might continue as we move towards Palm Sunday next week and then Holy Week and Easter. A wonderful spiritual journey at a time when we cannot go far physically.

Be assured of my prayers and thoughts at this time of isolation,

Peace be with you x

Doug

Sunday ‘Spiritual Communion’ Week 2

Thursday Reflections

Studies on Lament

During Lent we had intended to host a 6 week course on what the Bible tells us about the importance of Lament in church. This message is as important as ever now so here is the first of the sessions which we did indeed host … the others will follow in the next few weeks concluding in Holy Week. Let us not forget where we are in our spiritual journey this season and prepare for the Easter celebration as we need it’s message of light and freedom more now than ever.

Week 1 : The lost tradition of Lament!

Share your prayer as a comment below and paste a candle symbol if you can as we light a virtual light for our actual world.  Please avoid too much personal detail or lengthy prayers but use this as a chance to help us be of one heart and mind in our intercessions for the world and one another. Prayers will be removed after 7 days please do not be offended this is so that the page stays live and up to date.

Sunday ‘Spiritual Communion’

To the Congregations of Chebsey with Norton Bridge,
Ellenhall, Ranton and Seighford with Great Bridgeford and Creswell,

As you know we are in a situation where we cannot gather together for communion at the moment. But below is a service to remind us that, wherever we are, and however we feel, we can be in communion with God and with one another through the life, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are able to use the service below at 10am on Sunday you will be joining with others in worship and communion with the Living God.
God Bless you as you continue your journey through Lent, perhaps more in the manner that Christ spent those first 40 days in the wilderness than we might have expected when we started on Ash Wednesday. I hope to see you all very soon with the possibility of an Open Air Easter Day Service of which details will follow ..

Until then Peace Be With You x

Doug
