Message for February 2019

Shaped Every Day

Welcome to the February edition of St. David’s magazine and a welcome to 2019 which I pray will be a year of growing deeper into Christ for you.

I am struck by the passion for Christ of the early Church, filled by the Holy Spirit, who gathered together every day in the Temple praising our Lord, and who broke bread together in their homes, sold all their possessions and held everything in common, and distributed to those in need (Acts 2:43-47). Their life and practices were so different from the society and culture around them that many saw another way of living and held the early Church in high regard.

The Church today generally doesn’t live like this, so how does our faith affect our everyday life, and how are we shaped by our faith?

We have an opportunity on February 9th to come together as Churches in Coalville at an event called ‘Burning Bush,’ to celebrate 12 months of praying together, to give testimony to answered prayer that has shaped the lives of our Churches and to pray into 2019. The afternoon is at Marlborough Square Methodist Church starting at 4pm with refreshments at 3:30pm.

Then on February 27th, we will be welcoming the Bishop of Leicester, Martyn Snow, and the Bishop of Loughborough, Guli Frances-Dehqani, to guide us through an evening in St. David’s church hall that explores the question, “how does our faith affect every part of our lives, every day?” We will be joined by churches in our Deanery and together we will be able to explore how God is moving amongst us, and how he is shaping and will shape our lives.

There will be talks from both Bishops, video presentations, stories on display and time to talk to each other, as well as a time of worship and praise to our Lord.

Please put the date in your diary and come along on the 27th February; the evening starts at 7:30pm, with refreshments available from 7:10pm. St. David’s PCC is hosting the event and is involved in setting up the evening.

We will be linking from this event in Lent and Easter and then launching a new initiative shared amongst the churches in our Deanery that encourages people inside and outside the Church to Try praying. This will be followed by a time of prayer called Thy Kingdom Come which all are invited to be part of, and an opportunity to invite people to special church events. More about these will appear in our March magazine.

The early Church were in awe at the wonders and signs being done amongst them by God; may we also in our lives see the signs of God working amongst us and see these with awe and with wonder.
