As a Church we usually set aside a Tuesday each week and provide a place with space – the UPPER ROOM – a place for time-out in our busy days. This is a safe place, and COVID-19 guidelines are carefully followed.
However – the Upper Room is now on holiday until mid-August!
And some of us are taking time away over the next few weeks – at last!
However, it is good to continue to take time-out with God in these coming days and weeks.
* To find space to be still in a busy world
** To pause and pray with God – for yourself and for others
* To listen to God – Father Son and Holy Spirit – in these slower days and moments
So – why not plan to read a meaningful devotional book in this summer break?
Or have a notebook or journal nearby and record thoughts and dreams and prayers – and what God is saying to you at this time?
You are invited to take a meaningful walk…around the Pathway of Peace that will be available during July and August around the Kirk building.
We would invite you to take a walk around the Kirkyard and consider what God is saying to you at this time from the words displayed at various locations from the Bible…starting at the Offering House.
You are invited to use the bench at the top left of the Kirkyard (under the large tree) to pause and pray – to be still with God – to ask, seek, knock, wait and receive.
You are also reminded of the Prayer Wall available on the Kirk website under the Prayer tab – a place you can bring your prayers – and ask for prayer if appropriate.
The Daily Devotions will take us to the Psalms in July and August – and you may want to pray a psalm each day. This is available on the Kirk website blog and our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter from 7am- and in the church magazine.
And – don’t forget the brief Sunday morning Reflection at 8am…
Above all – make the most of summer time-out – for body, mind and spirit!
Y-ield/say Yes to God’s ways!
