Faith and Society Update - March 2019
Welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.
Baptist Union Council meets next week, and there will be a focus on ethical investments, encouraging women in ministry and the future composition of Baptist Steering Group. All involved would value your prayers. Find your Council representative on our website.
We are continuing to take bookings for the Baptist Assembly. Enabling the local church in mission is at the heart of our gathering this year, which has a different and longer format, and we would love for you to consider being a part of it.
As Lent begins, we are invited to make significant changes to our lifestyle for the climate by our Joint Public Issues Team as part of its Living Lent initiative. Find this, and other Lent and Easter information, in our resources section.
And as we mark Ash Wednesday, I offer this prayer from our Public Issues Enabler Beth Allison-Glenny:
We thank you for your Son and through him our chance to become your children.
As we journey through Lent towards the cross, challenge us again to an uncomfortable holiness.
Drive us into the wilderness places of our world, to the places where there is no food, no power and no protection.
Show us your Spirit at work there, so we might partner with you in the call of the gospel and discover your faithfulness to us, even in the deserted place and especially in the shadow of the cross.
Have mercy upon us we pray,
Faith and Society Team
