Snow at the bandstand!

DSC00193Well we’ve done all weathers now – and lived to tell the tale despite it being -5 degrees and no-one to blame for not turning the heating on!  It was beautiful, particularly when the sun came out and it was good to reflect, light our four candles (or was that  fork handles?) and pray for the world, our local community and our dear friends who are struggling with their very own time of anxious waiting.  Steve wrote something for our sharing of bread and wine, particularly focussing on the word ‘companion’ which literally means ‘with bread’.  Here it is:

Companions…

Those we share bread with are our companions along the Way – our “with breaders!” As we break and share bread together we do so as companions.

In our sharing bread today we include in companionship:

ALL: The fallen, broken, yearning, pregnant Creation.

In our sharing bread today we include in companionship:

ALL: The saints alive and the saints resurrected.

In our sharing of bread today we include in companionship:

ALL: The poor, marginalised and rejected of this world.

In our sharing of bread today we include in companionship:

ALL: Those known to us and those not known, who need Jesus now.

In our sharing of bread today we include in companionship:

ALL: Tony and Francis and Charlotte.

In our sharing of bread today we include in companionship:

ALL: Jesus, our incarnated, broken and risen Lord. AMEN!

 

Wine is for sorrow and for joy, for suffering and for celebration, for forgiveness and for New Relationship.

ALL: We drink until Christ returns. AMEN!

 

And so we pray:

ALL:  Send us out to wait and to work for the Kingdom. Make us people of hope , fanning the flames of redemption and resurrection in the world. AMEN!

 

All looking forward to Christmas morning in the park at 9:15 am. 

Join us?

Minus five but praising!
