Light a Candle of Hope.
Churches Together in England is encouraging churches and individuals to Light a Candle of Hope at 7pm this coming Sunday 22 March. We are asked to put a candle in the windows of our homes as a visible sign of Christ, our light and hope.
Details are available at https://www.cte.org.uk/
You are invited to join in if possible; remembering to stand it on something steady and secure and keep the flame away from flammable materials like curtains and blinds.
Taken from the web link above... "This Mothering Sunday, 22nd March, we are calling all churches to a National Day of Prayer and Action. At such a time as this, when so many are fearful and there is great uncertainty, we are reminded of our dependence on our loving Heavenly Father and the future that he holds.
At 7pm this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your homes as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.
Whether you are continuing to worship as congregations or not, we have the great privilege and freedom to be able to call upon God, wherever we are, individually and corporately, for healing in our nation. We would pray for all in leadership at this time, making decisions about the containment of the COVID-19 virus, for those working in health and social care, and especially for the most vulnerable, whether elderly or those with underlying health conditions."
Whether you light a candle or not, prayer is a powerful tool in whatever situation we find ourselves.
