The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

All have sinned and forfeited God’s glory, and all are justified through the free gift of his grace by being redeemed in Christ Jesus who was appointed by God to sacrifice his life so as to win reconciliation through faith.

Romans 3:23-25

A Thought for Today

That the spirit may always shine forth in me, that I may not succumb to the temptation that lies in wait for every act of boldness, nor ever forget that you alone must be sought in and through everything, you, Lord, will send me – at what moments only you know – deprivations, disappointments, sorrow. What is to be brought about is more than a simple union: it is a transformation, in the course of which the only thing our human activity can do is, humbly, to make ourselves ready, and to accept.
