STREET PASTORS BIRTHDAY

EARLY BIRD TICKETS UNTIL 21ST AUGUST

Dear Friend
What does freedom really look like? We try and maintain the momentum, but life keeps adding yet more challenges! From home, family and work pressures – it’s difficult to know what’s worth keeping up and what to let go.
However many plates you’re spinning it’s easy to get distracted and lose sight of who God has designed you to be. Free to Be is an event where you’ll leave feeling inspired with practical ideas and a renewed vision to step out into the life God has called you to.
Join Cathy Madavan and Bekah Legg to explore what freedom in Christ really looks like.
We hope to see you there!

NATIONAL 100 DAYS OF PRAYER

100-Days-Peace-Hope-logo 14 August
90 days to go
As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace…’
Luke 19:41-42 (NIV)

HE HIMSELF IS OUR PEACE

If you’ve ever sat with a human being as they grieve desperate loss, you may find that words fail as you try to bring peace. But if a deeply trusted friend comes close, then very often peace begins to return without the need for words. When the depth of pain in a fresh wound is met by a greater depth of love, peace becomes possible. When God wanted to bring peace to the most troubled city in the history of our planet, he didn’t send words or ideas. He stepped through its gates with tears in his eyes. The Bible tells us that ‘he himself is our peace’. His desire is to come close enough to touch our troubled lives.

PRAYER
Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace, where there is pain, please come close. Where I need you, please come close. Where my people need you, please come close. Where my world needs you, please come close. Please open our eyes to ‘the things which make for peace.’

This reflection and prayer is contributed by Joel Goodlet who lives in Birmingham with his wife and three children, seeking the welfare of local neighbourhoods from a foundation of prayer.

100 Days of Peace and Hope is available with Bible readings, reflections and prayers for each week to download at www.remembrance100.co.uk/100-days
