Prayer of the Week

Merciful God, who sent your messenger John the Baptist to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: give us grace to heed his warning and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever, Amen.
  
  
  
FROM THE RECTOR
THE WEEK AHEAD
   Well, things are hotting up! It’s great to see people participating in the Advent activities. Even if you don’t feel up to walking the labyrinth or coming to the meditation sessions, try to read the gospel readings for the day and pray for those intentions mentioned in the Advent calendar booklet. Thank you to those who came to the Ellery House service on Wednesday – it gave a great boost to those who volunteer there every month, and to the residents and an easy 1 hour of activity of outreach and pastoral care – and bonus, we’ve found a new singing group as a result!
I will be away on Monday and Tuesday as I go to Canberra for my daughter’s birthday and to see my boys before Christmas. In the meantime, stay cool as the waiting continues…
Maranatha, come Lord, Jesus.
Shalom, Anne
