For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ (Ephesians 2:8-10).
This coming Sunday, November 13th, we gather for a service of Morning Prayers at 10:30am.
This is the 2nd Sunday before Advent, but also Remembrance Sunday. In the service, have a moment of silence to honor those who have lost their lives in war. But we also commemorate beloved friends and family members who have passed away in this or in recent years and light candles for them in memorial.
If you would like to have someone commemorated in the service, please do send the Chaplain their full name (first and last names), preferably by November 12th if possible (though names can be added in person, on the day, of course). You may send the names by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a telephone message at 050 785 0703.
Our main readings for Sunday are Malachi 4:1-2a (warning about the coming day of the Lord, but also giving encouragement that that will bring the sun of righteousness, with healing) and Luke 21:5-19 (Jesus cautions about the eventual fall of the Temple and persecution, but urges his disciples to persevere in faith — ‘Stand firm, and you will win life.’) Timely texts from Scripture, as ever!
There will be a children’s activity offered during the service as well, and coffee and tea afterwards.
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday if you can join us!
