ABM (Anglican Board of Mission) PEW REFLECTIONS – Sunday 17 June 2018
Samuel grieves for Saul, but even Samuel is surprised by who God might choose to be a King. With Jesus there are surprises too, for ‘he did not speak to them except in parables’, known for their surprising depths.
·       Pray that we might hear anew God’s word in our lives, for freshness of hearing and listening.
·       Pray for the Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle East, giving thanks for the work they do to further God’s mission in the world.

There is no escaping the reading from Acts today, but if placed later there is space for the fantastic reading from Ezekiel, the valley of dry bones. The hope present there is the hope presented elsewhere: that which is dry and dead can have new life, wherever the Spirit touches.
·       Pray and give thanks for all that breathes life into you.
·       Pray for the Church of the Province of Central Africa, giving thanks for the work they do to further God’s mission in the world.

Thank you to Susana S. and Beverley L.for their donations of beautiful flower arrangements that made the church bright and colourful on Easter Day.

LENTEN STUDIES
Our Lenten studies led by Barbara were very rewarding.  A small group gathered every Tuesday in the church at 6 pm during Lent.  The Gospel from the previous Sunday was studied and we were asked for our thoughts on these passages. It was amazing to hear individual interpretations of the particular often well known Gospel and much gentle and considerate discussion followed.  Many times Barbara’s knowledge untangled our thoughts and interpretations and individual expressions from the group often revealed a new look at a well loved and favourite passage.  The fellowship of the group was one of the greatest gifts.

NOTICES
LENT
Lent is a penitential season in preparation for Easter. The order of the Liturgy is changed in Lent - there are no Alleluias, the Gloria is not said or sung and instead the Trisagion on Page 121 is said. The Preparation, the Words of Scripture, the Prayer of Approach, the Confession and Absolution are all said in the centre of the Eucharist.  The Second Sentence is said where there is an option, and the Anthems and Invitation to Communion on Page 146 are used. There are no flowers in Lent and the liturgical colour is blue or purple, holy pictures and objects and icons are veiled in Holy Week.  Lent is a more meditative and reflective season of the church year and the liturgy tries to encourage this sense and atmosphere.
