Prayer for Liverpool
The Gospel reading in the Eucharist today from John 14: 1-14 includes Jesus’ famous saying ‘I am the Way’. Those of us who have been using Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home have explored this powerful theme through the image of maps. Some of us have found maps or made signpost to focus the Gospel theme as we participate at home in the streamed service.
The picture I have chosen to introduce my blog shows how Aled and Sian studied their map at home, and then followed the signs to explore their neighbourhood.
The Gospel reading for next Sunday’s Eucharist from John 14: 15-21 includes Jesus’ famous saying that the Father will give us another Advocate. In Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home we invite you to reflect during the coming week on this promise through the lens of the image the guide. You will find the Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home preparation sheet for today on the Resources tab of the website, under the “Preparation” column. Also on the Resources page you will find suggestions of things to think about, things to pray about, and things to do, in order to prepare our hearts, minds, and souls for next Sunday’s service. Look under the “Preparation” column of the Resources page for next week’s Exploring the Sunday Gospel at Home preparation sheet and under the “Education” column for the Cathedral Education Team’s craft document. We would really appreciate you letting us know how you are using these materials. Please send us your ideas and photos of the things you may create; email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The lockdown has been going on for some weeks now and it is time to reflect on how the Church and on how we are responding to that experience. Working with the Church Times and with Bishop David Walker of Manchester, a colleague and I have designed a survey to help the Church reflect on and to plan for the future. I hope that many people who visit this website will be willing to take time to participate in this survey. Find out more here: https://tinyurl.com/ycsq9fy2.

We invite you to further engage with us using the Breakfast and the Bible document here:
