Faith and Society Update - January 2019
Happy New Year, and welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.
You may have seen the Fuelcast video of our General Secretary, Lynn Green or heard her speak on Premier Radio on Christmas Day. Another Fuelcast video published on New Year’s Day leads us in prayers for ourselves, our communities, and our world for the new year. We’re encouraged to see how, in spite of difficulties in our world, God is at work and doing a new thing!
The Spring 2019 edition of Baptists Together magazine, focusing on women in Baptist ministry, is now available. Three copies will be sent free of charge to our Church Secretaries next week - please look out for these and share them with your church. As usual, additional copies and subscriptions are available to order from our online shop - or you can download a copy from our website. Perhaps you could encourage a woman in your church who is hearing a call to ministry, by giving her a copy?
As we journey together into 2019 let’s reflect on these words from our prayer diary
Eternal Lord God, we give you thanks for bringing us through the changes of time to the beginning of another year. Forgive us the wrong we have done in the year that is past, and help us to spend the rest of our days to your honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
