Worcester Diocese Podcast

A sermon podcast for Trinity 2 on Sunday 9 June from Robert Barbour, Licensed Lay Minister for Ribbesford w. Bewdley & Dowles & Wribbenhall

Collect

Lord, you have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing worth: send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love, the true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you. Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

Wed 12 Diocese of Morogoro We give thanks for the ministry of Bishop Godfrey and for all the diocesan staff who provide such a pivotal role in upholding and nurturing all those in ministry of every kind.

Clergy: Vacant Sat 15 Growing as Kingdom People As we seek to transform our communities, pray that our eyes might be opened to issues that are particularly affecting our locality such as poverty, dementia or a lack of facilities for young people. Amen Our prayer might be not only that we should experience that more fully for ourselves but all might do so. So, we pray for the Church in its mission to spread Kingdom joy and for all those in need, those whose lives are still racked with the marks of Christ’s passion to find abundance of life and joy. Then will the kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Bishop + John
