BLESSINGS FROM THE CIRCLES OF TRUST MEETINGS Feb 2021

At the last of the 3 Saturday retreats each member of the group wrote a blessing for our joint St Andrews/ St Aidans Venture.

Here are 2 of them .

A Voyage in Faith

Now this voyage is underway in earnest.

Through the Circles of Trust and the Genesis Group images of hope and new opportunities begin to emerge and coalesce.

May all that voyage on this journey be blessed. May they have the patience to listen to the hearts and heads of others to catch the enthusiasm of their guides, to positively commit to the direction collectively chosen and work to create a fulfilling and vibrant new community of faith.

And in particular may the guides for this journey be blessed with the wisdom and vision that comes from the teaching of Jesus.

******

May God bless this new church that is being formed from the two churches, St Andrews and St Aidans.

May we be willing to let go of old ways and customs as we embrace new ways

May we be flexible and creative

May we be ever looking towards helping those in the community who need nourishment, be it physical or spiritual.

May we practise during the week the sentiments we express on Sundays.

In Jesus’ name we ask Amen
