Next Sunday in all churches in the parish we will be considering our vision for the immediate future in our parish Below are a few questions to think about in preparation
1 What are those situations that most need transformation in our immediate environment/community?
2 What is the one in which I feel I could be most effective?
3 What have I got to offer - what gifts can I bring?
All are welcome and nobody will be put on the spot - if you just want to listen to the conversation then that is good too.
Services are Newcastle 9am; Straffan 10.15; Celbridge 11.30
Below is a prayer we have been using for the last month in preparation:
Lord Jesus who taught us to pray 'Thy Kingdom Come', give us we pray a fresh vision of your Kingdom in this place and a sense of our shared and individual callings to discipleship. Give us courage to let you into our lives, and faith to follow you wherever you lead us. Forgive us for those times we have not responded to your calling and those occasions we have been obstacles to your loving purposes. You have called us to be Salt and Light - Renew us in this calling and where we have lost our saltiness and light restore us so that we may commit ourselves afresh to serving you. We wait on you Lord - Lord Hear our Prayer. Amen.
