That’s the theme for this year’s World Day of Prayer service. I’ve been invited to preach at the service in Lesmahagow on Friday and I’m looking forward to it, although as yet I have no idea what to say! (this is becoming a recurrent theme!) The readings are from Ephesians 4: 1-16 and Genesis 18: 1-18 and the theme is ‘United Under God’s Tent’. At first glance there doesn’t seem to be much relating the two readings and the theme but I guess at first glance things never seem related.
The service has been written by women from Paraguay and will be led by women from the local church here. I don’t think I’ve ever been to one of these services before. I’m not sure why not because it seems like the kind of thing I’d like. Anyway, I’ll be there on Friday night. Maybe by then I’ll have some clue about what to say… any ideas (or complete sermons) welcome!
