It is September and we have begun a new Church Year, a time we can hope of New Beginnings.
We Methodist Christians are lucky – we have two ‘New Years’. This one, starting in September (and echoing the educational year), marks a new annual cycle of Church events and celebrations.
Look out this year for us continuing things we’ve done before, letting some things go, and also trying some new things. Watch this space for more details!
A prayer for the new year:
Lord, we come to you in adoration for all that you have done for us over our lives.
We pray for a new beginning to help us to bring our churches into the 21st Century which will encompass everyone.
We pray for all of our Churches and all who work lovingly to bring your message to all those around them. We pray that we can all have open minds and hearts for your love and the ability to spread that love throughout the world. Amen
