Thought for Thursday 11th August

We would really like PICTURES from you  in our You Tube Sunday service. Please send them as soon as possible to Martin Lynas.  [email protected]

TECHNO help wanted. To give our hard working You Tube service producer, Martin Lynas, a break, is there anyone who could take a turn on a rota to put together and upload the Sunday service video from the short video clips the ministry team and Natasha send in each week?  If so, please reply to Martin Lynas, [email protected]  who can fill in the detail of what this is.

Thought for the Day 

We pray for peace for peace in Ukraine 

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.’ (Mother Teresa)

We may never know the difference our kind words and actions make but taking the time to listen to someone can be transforming. Mo Farah opened up to his PE teacher about being trafficked and exploited because his teacher spent time with him. When his behaviour was challenging, his PE teacher did not give up on him. His teacher’s support was the key to Mo Farah beginning a new and fulfilling life.

It’s impossible to know how many children are exploited like Mo Farah. Telling his story in a BBC documentary was clearly painful and risked him losing his British citizenship. Yet Mo’s courage and integrity will surely have echoes he may never know for other sufferers of modern slavery, who feel they have no hope...and for the people who seek to help them.

with love and prayers
