Thought for the Week

International Relations

Peace will be our Lenten living As we turn to home again,
Longing for the word of pardon, Stripping off old grief and pain,
till we stand, restored and joyful, With the Church on Easter Day.

Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.
Isaiah 42:1

With international relations reflecting many of the hatred and bitterness that is seen in local communities, between neighbours and within families, our thankful prayers go to Mother Union in Peru where members are supporting families separated by circumstance or ill- feeling. After receiving loving support a husband and wife were reunited and live happily together again., standing ‘restored and joyful’. We thank you, loving God, for the peace you bring us in your son, Jesus and for the witness of members in Peru.
