As August draws to a close…and life and work get a tad busier…
At Liberton Kirk 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 above the Kirkgate Cafe. This is a safe place for you to be.
The Upper Room will once again be open this Tuesday…and it’s had a new make-over during the summer…..you are invited to take time-out with God at some point…7.30am – 7.15pm
This is a quiet place…..a place for you and God to take time-out together
* A space for yourself to be still in a busy world
** To pause and pray with God – the God of all comfort, wisdom, mercy and hope
* To listen to God – Father Son and Holy Spirit – in these times
There are opportunities to pause and pray with others at 8am….12 noon and 7pm….and John and others gathered then will be happy to see you at any of these times…..
This Tuesday evening we come together as a Church Family for our monthly Gathering for Prayer…in the Kirk 7.30-8.30pm. You are invited to join us as we take time to give thanks to our God for blessings received….to wait with Him….to bring Him our prayers together as we step into the season’s life and work….and to pray for others/each other around the Cross.
You are also invited to visit the Peace Pathway as you walk the grounds around the Kirk building whatever day of the week you choose before it ends this week – 8am-8pm – there are several helpful reflections and prayers – starting at the Offering House.
You are also encouraged to use the bench at the top left of the Kirkyard (under the large tree – weather permitting) to pause and pray – to be still with God – to ask, seek, knock, wait and receive.
You are 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 from the Prayer Team if appropriate. At this time of war in Ukraine you may want to add your own prayer for our world at this time.
The Daily Devotions are taking us to a daily time of considering God’s Good News with God’s written Word in the book of ROMANS during 2022 – and you may want to pause to pray with others at the start of each day as we consider the truths behind the words of ISAIAH for the summer weeks of July and August. 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…….and you can still revisit Thy Kingdom Come global prayer venture daily reflections on our YouTube channel…..from our Prayer Ministry Team providing a reflection over the recent 11 days
May we each and all experience time-out with the Living and True God – whenever – wherever – as we journey through these refreshing closing days of Summer 2022.
