Somerby We give thanks for our recent 60th Anniversary Celebrations. This was a wonderful occasion with a fascinating insight in to the lives of John and Charles Wesley given by Rev. Dr. Ralph Waller in the afternoon and an Ascension Day Communion Service in the evening led by Rev. Leo Osborn, the speaker again being Dr. Waller. The Chapel was full for both services with many staying for tea in between. A truly uplifting day.
Loving God, We pray for a new awareness of the battlefield within us; new ways of channelling aggressive instincts; new thought patterns, language and ideas; a new appreciation of the world as one community; new methods of dialogue and negotiation; new attempts to befriend those different from ourselves; new readiness to forgive and reconcile; new visions, new hope, new love … and a renewed faith that the peace that passes all understanding can reach out from within us and embrace the world. In the name of Christ the peacemaker, Amen
