Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Mission dedication service

Monday's speaker was Revd Philip Swan, Director of World Mission in the Diocese of Lichfield.
I will just share the key points of his message!
We are so preoccupied with our little corner that we forget our brothers and sisters in Christ in the rest of the world.  
The Christ we share.










Be surprised to what God has installed for us! God is so much bigger than we can imagine. 
The Son is…the firstborn over all creation…..
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together……
Through him to reconcile to himself all things…..
‘It takes a whole world to know the whole Christ’. Max Warren, former leader of the Church Mission Society.
We need each other’s vision to correct, enlarge and focus our own; only together are we complete in Christ.
Andrew Walls
One question:  what is the average age of a typical Anglican worldwide? 
Answer 31


Posted 28 November                              
The Average Anglican 
...is black, female, under 30, has 3 children, lives 
on 2 dollars a day, walks 3km for water, is related 
to someone with HIV/AIDS, and is evangelical...
As an Anglican in England I found this a 
fascinating comment on the development 
of Anglicanism.

Has anyone any comments?

Thank you,

Audrey 

We have dicocesan links throughout the world, first our link with Mecklenburg within the new context of the Northern Church of Germany, then 
other links further away, Matlosane, South Africa, West Malaysia, Kuching and Singapore in South East Asia and Qu’Appelle, Canada.
These partnerships can help us to engage in fresh ways with:
•Discipleship
•Mission
•Worship
•Prayer
•Justice
 

Mosul is empty;
Basrah is empty;
Baghdad is empty…

We are now facing the extinction of Christianity as a religion and as a culture from Mesopotamia.

The Prayer of Thanksgiving
 Is the Father with us?
 He is.
 Is Christ among us?
 He is.
 Is the Spirit here?
 He is.
 This is our God.
 Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
