Quote of the Week

May His abundant love bring you many blessings and your world be lit with love and happiness. Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Palm Sunday.

Weekly Prayer The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer written by Thomas Cranmer.

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the Power and the Glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Weekly Practice

Before you get out of bed in the morning or before you fall asleep at night, look back over the preceding twenty-four hours. Then think about this: How did you build up the kingdom of God today?
