Salt and Light

The Lord calls us to be salt and light in the world and so be a blessing to others


Blessings from the Lord

Lord of Hope we give You thanks for a new day

We arise today to a horizon guiding our eye beyond the everyday; to a dawn gently lighting up the wonders of  Your creation; to a whispered dew rooting us firmly to this precious earth.

For this and more we thank You.

Lord of Hope we give You thanks for a new year

We arise today to the knowledge that Your Son, our Lord, goes before us; to the hope that through His presence all people will be transformed; to the promise of salvation for all.

For this and more we thank You.

Lord of Hope we give You thanks for a new start

We arise today turning our backs on the ways of judgement and criticism; sloughing off narrow-minded assumptions; reaching out to enemy and friend with generous compassionate hearts.


For  we are all created “in God’s image”


It means that there is something God placed in each of us that is a reflection of Godself.

 Just as we received our genetic makeup from our parents, we received something from God that makes us unique and makes us, each of us, belong to God.

When Jesus spoke about us loving our neighbours as ourselves in the context of the greatest commandment, this is the “why” of it all.

We are to love others as ourselves because all of us are made in the image of God and belong to God.

And we should live our lives honouring that fact.


For the promise of a new start, a new year, a new day, for these gifts and for so much more we thank You.

Amen
