Friday 1st January – Icon of the Day
‘In what way do you have a feverish desire to do the will of God?’
mage: ‘Praying Hands’, Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. Bronze sculpture by Leonard McMurry, cast in Mexico in 1980. At 60 feet tall and weighing 30 tons, it is widely described as one of the largest bronze sculptures in the world, if not the largest.
In St Mary’s prayer cycle, at the beginning of a New Year, we pray for guidance and
blessing on all the decisions we shall make in our homes, the church and our lives during the coming year.
In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with activities in our buildings greatly restricted, we no longer receive the previous level of financial support from collections at Services, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.
If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, as those before us have done down the centuries, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':
