Lest We Forget
This year Remembrance Day fell on a Sunday. Churches all over the country will have taken time to pray for peace and remember those who lost their lives in war, as we did.
Disturbingly, there have been 150 major conflicts in the World since the 2nd World War ended in 1945. It was equally upsetting to hear that the World has only actually been at peace for 26 days during that entire time.
I am reminded of the words of Mahatma Gandhi – Be the change you want to see in the World
Walking across Britain, East to West
Scripture says: ‘We are to love our neighbour as we love our self.’ But what happens when you don’t like yourself? Can you really love your neighbour when you dislike the person in the mirror? Or does self loathing explain the problems in the world today? Because we send our self-hatred ‘out there’.
We have all heard of the power of prayer. And you know Facebook is the largest social media platform in the World. So what happens when the two collide?
I am really fortunate to be a lover and avid user of Facebook… a home to modern day miracles.
I’ve watched (and been part of) ‘Love Flash Mobs’. Initiatives arranged by Glennon Melton of Momastery that accept donations of no more than $25 (£16) towards making dreams come true for families with challenges. The reason being ‘together we can do hard things’
I’ve also recently been part of a prayer project for a young mum
Allen’s vision of building a centre to offer high-quality education and training in all aspects of Christian Ministry began some years ago. Since that time he has spent a number of years in the UK, training and has begun spreading his word to bring life to his dream.
A large plot of land in Chinhoyi, 70 miles west of Harare, has been donated to them. Plans have been drawn and the first structure is near completion. The vision is being realised!
With the aim of reaching the most needy and vulnerable, the centre will empower Church Leaders and Communities to share the Gospel with passion and confidence and to show Christian love, grace and kindness.
