Prayer for Holy Cross Church
Heavenly Father, we ask that you help us to grow in faith, love one another, share responsibility, care for those in need, reach out to others and welcome newcomers. Lord Jesus, guard and grow this church as we seek you together during the interregnum. Please guide us in all our work for your kingdom so that together we may discover your way for the future and see your kingdom grow. Amen

Thought for the week:

Genesis 8:22 God said 'As long as the Earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall never cease'  

We need to understand the world as a gift to us, from God. We are unable to give God anything, except that which he has already given to us. Our gifts at harvest time are sacrifices for God's sake, as a sign for his generous love. For his part, God returns what we sacrifice to him in the form of fresh gifts and blessings. Grace for grace.
