The Church of England has circulated this prayer for reconciliation after the EU Referendum:
“Eternal God, Light of the nations,
in Christ you make all things new:
guide our nation in the coming days through the inspiration of your Spirit,
that understanding may put an end to discord and all bitterness.
Give us grace to rebuild bonds of trust
that together we may work for the dignity and flourishing of all;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
On the website of the Diocese in Europe, of which our church is a part, there are a number of responses from our Bishops, Robert and David, and from the Archbishops in England which you may find worth reading:
The next women’s bible study will take place on Friday 24 June at 18.45h, at the home of Diana and David Cowley, 5 rue de Londres, Esplanade – tram D, stop Esplanade.
Andra Fedder will lead the study on “an introduction into Christian contemplative meditation.” It promises to be a an interesting time together !
This coming Sunday, 26th June, Maryline and Frederick William-Smith invite everyone at St. Alban’s to come and have lunch after church in their shady garden in Cronenbourg, 7 rue des Ducs, tram stop Ducs d’Alsace. Please bring something to share – salads, vegetables and desserts and drinks; meat for grilling will be provided and Naveed Jacob and his sons will yet again demonstrate their prowess at the grill. These laid-back summer lunches in Cronenbourg are really enjoyable and a great opportunity to get to know members of our congregation better.
If you need any information please contact Maryline under: firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you need directions, just ask the churchwardens, Pauline and Anny, after church.
