As I sit down to write my very first blog as President of MWiB in the peace and comfort of our bedroom in the Hilton Metropole Hotel Birmingham I am thinking of all those friends, probably still on their journeys home, that came along to show their love and support at my induction service. I feel very blessed by the events of of tonight, by fellowship shared and prayers offered. it is a great privilege to have the opportunity to serve God through MWiB and I look forward to meeting many new friends as I travel around the connexion.
Saturday : wide awake at 6am this morning, I decided to write a little more having opened many cards, pictured above. Each card is very special and unique, conveying messages of love, encouragement and thoughtful prayers. We too are unique and wonderfully crafted by God, we each have our own gifts and talents to use as we share the message of God’s unconditional love.
Lord Jesus Christ, wisdom and Word of God, dwell in our hearts, by your most Holy Spirit, that out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths may speak your praise. Amen (Christina Rossetti)
