Peter Hurford: Wem in Leidestagen

Glory be to Jesus,
who in bitter pains
poured for me the life-blood
from his sacred veins.

Grace and life eternal
in that blood I find:
blest be his compassion,
infinitely kind.

Lent collection

We have decided to support the work of Start Up Stirling for our Lent Collection this year.
We do collect items for Start Up all year round, but we thought to give it a special focus as, sadly, the need for food banks and other kinds of support is rising in our area. Items can be dropped off at HT, but we’ll also collect cash donations.
See Start Up for more details: startupstirling.org.uk/how-to-help

Lent Book

Our Lent Book this year is Saying Yes to Life by Dr Ruth Valerio, who is an environmentalist and theologian working at Tearfund.

This is the blurb:

As people made in the image of God, we are entrusted to look after what has been created: to share in God’s joy and ingenuity in making a difference for good.

Ruth Valerio imaginatively draws on the Days of Creation (Genesis 1), as she relates themes of light, water, land, the seasons, other creatures, humankind, Sabbath rest and resurrection hope to matters of environmental, ethical and social concern.
