4th – 10th April 2010
back to Justice and Poverty…
This week we have finished our Healthy Households series, so we move back to our Justice and Poverty Journal.
Sunday 4th April – Easter Sunday – Who is Easter for? Just us and the people we love! Spend sometime thinking of people, individuals or groups that you struggle to understand or even like. How does your life reflect that Easter is for them too?
Monday 5th April – Today the Newpin fundraising walkers arrive at the coast, do you see something of the message of Easter in the way they have served and given of themselves (even till it hurts!!!). Today write a letter of thanks and appreciation to them (hand it into the front office and we will make sure it gets to the walkers).
Tuesday 6th April – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week is the ‘Kippax Young Leaders Challenge’. Who do you know in yrs 10+ you could encourage to ‘take-up the challenge’? Let us know asap.
Wednesday 7th April – take some time today, remember something from our Healthy Households series and seek how you can apply it to this 24hrs and beyond.
Thursday 8th April – During the upcoming school holidays a variety of people will be leading worship and preaching, today pray for them as they prepare, and take time to thank and encourage them after the worship.
Friday 9th April – Tonight people from across (including Kippax adults and youth reps) ACT & NSW start to gather for a 3 day meeting of the NSW/ACT Synod of the Uniting Church – pray for them and the meeting.
Saturday 10th April – ACT School holidays start now for the next 2 weeks, for those having a break: rest well and enjoy your time. For those travelling be wise and please don’t drive ‘tired’.
