12 steps of humility


Recognise the presence of God

Accept the Will of God

Accept spiritual direction

Persevere

Acknowledge faults

Live simply

Be honest about yourself

Be willing to learn from others

Listen to people

Speak kindly to others

Accept others the way they are

Be centred and serene


Joan Chittister

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today, Ash Wednesday, we pray for all those marking Lent and for our Zoom Lent Groups.


***

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, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':

Thank you!
