|A prayer for St Mary's for 2019
|An appeal from Bishop Pete
Like everyone else, I have been looking on in dismay at the disruption and devastation
suffered in many areas of our Diocese by the recent flooding, not least in Bentley, Fishlake
and the surrounding areas.
It can be hard to see beyond the distress at such times, but I share in the widespread
delight at seeing the amazing spirit of local people as they have rallied around those in
greatest need, responding with an outpouring of generosity.
I am especially proud of the church community and the way that they have put themselves
and resources at the service of people in the greatest need. Church members have been
mobilising volunteers, coordinating donations and making church buildings available to
those whose lives have been so badly affected.
I recognise that the road ahead in restoring homes and livelihoods will be a long one. One
member of our diocesan family has made a suggestion that I would like to share with you,
as we approach Advent and Christmas — when you can be sure many in our region will still
be living with the consequences of what has happened. Might you consider choosing a
carol service where a retiring collection could be taken to support the Flood Appeal Fund
administered by the South Yorkshire Community Foundation? Collections could either be
passed to Church House by 9 January 2020, or paid directly to the fund at:
Please keep these communities in your prayers over the coming weeks:
Compassionate God, source of all comfort, We pray for the people whose lives have
devastated by the recent flooding. Bring them comfort; protect the weak and vulnerable;
and give strength and wisdom to all those working to bring relief to those in need. May our
response to their suffering be generous and bring you praise.
For we ask it in Jesus name, Amen
