Please join us for New Life at Home, LIVE on YouTube and FaceBook from 9am every Sunday morning.
I hope you are going OK with lockdown. Are you finding ways to stay connected with others and be attentive to God in your life?
God’s command to us in Hebrews 13:3 has been part of my life for a long time. I used to wear a silicon bracelet that had a paraphrase of this verse printed on it:
REMEMBER THEIR CHAINS
It’s a call to remember men and women who are in prison because they are followers of Jesus.
We are to remember those who are persecuted for their faith. This next week we are remembering the persecuted church:
- NewLife@Home we hear from Joel Narayan of OpenDoors.
- Prayer for Persecuted Church on ZOOM (link below) – Wednesday 10:30-11am and 7-7:30pm
- NewLife Kids@Home for families to learn together about the persecuted church: discovernewlife.church/kids/
It will be wonderful to have many of us together on ZOOM for prayer. It will be so uplifting to see faces and be in prayer together. The prayer time will NOT be recorded or broadcast on YouTube or Facebook. Please join in.
Beyond this Sunday, I’m looking forward to reading Zechariah with you (a bit earlier than planned)! God speaks through Zechariah to his people who are disillusioned and disappointed. I am struck by how relevant what Zechariah wrote 2,500 years ago is to my life right now. God’s Messiah lifts my heart up to a hope that is for real.
See you soon,
