Sue's Prayer Reflections: June





Jesus’ greatest commandment is that we should love one another. 

The name of a forthcoming Christian aide event is “Speak Up For The Love Of”, because we are in a position to speak up for the many people in the world who have no voice of their own – people who are all part of God’s family who He loves. On 17th June thousands will be gathering at Westminster to tell our M.P.s how the things we love are being affected by Climate Change, and urging them to do all they can to ensure measures are put in place world-wide to reduce the effects of Climate Change.

God also loves the world He created: both are threatened by Climate Change. Christian Aid are asking us to make bunting to take on 17th June, with each little flag decorated with what it is you love that you want to protect from Climate Change. You could do this even if you are not able to come on 17th June, and as you draw and stitch that can be your prayer: a prayer of thanks for God’s beautiful world, a prayer for confession for our mis-use of that beautiful world, and prayer for those we seek to love and serve. (If you let Sue have your flag (- a cloth triangle: base about 20cm, sides about 25cm), she will stitch them into bunting to take on the day.)
