Prayer for Liverpool
It is Sunday; well that is what the diary tells me. It does not feel like a ‘real Sunday’. There is no physical church and, like all of you good citizens, I am not going to church. We are all staying at home.
As life changed this week from worshipping in the Cathedral behind closed doors to no worship in the Cathedral I have begun to re-think what it means to worship ‘the God who knows and loves us’. Gradually, and I have to say gradually as I am no technical expert, I have begun to discover what is and what is not possible through technology.
So this week we are trying once again to connect with the Cathedral community and the people of Liverpool and Merseyside through this web site (prayforliverpool.org). To access today’s worship and reflection by Canon Leslie Francis, Canon Theologian, click on this link to the Cathedral Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LiverpoolCathedral/videos/503838456953743/. You can download the text of the service below.
As a Cathedral Chapter and with other colleagues we will also be worshipping at home through Microsoft Teams. Canon Myles will be leading us in a Eucharist which will be offered on behalf of us all. This will take place at the usual time, so please do stop for a moment and think about sharing with us in prayer, as we remember Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples, when he instituted the Eucharist.
The institution of the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday led on to Good Friday the day when Jesus died. It continues to feel like we are still in Good Friday and that we have a long journey to go until we reach resurrection and Easter Day. We will continue to pray for you all and wish you God’s Blessing in this strange, odd and difficult time.
