President’s letter

Greetings Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

 

The 14th Assembly is approaching fast and I hope whether you are a member of the

 Assembly or a member of our church you will join us in prayer, throughout the 40

 days of the Sacred Season of Prayer. You can also follow the Assembly through

 social media and the web site which will assist your prayers and I hope your sense

 of connection to the gathering, as the people of God.

 Uniting Prayer and Fasting have been faithfully calling intercessors to prayer

 during the last triennium on each occasion when the Assembly Standing

 Committee has met and throughout this period for particular concerns the

 Assembly Officers may advise.

 

My firm belief is that the purposes and plans of God through his people must be

 saturated in prayer and so I value this ministry tremendously. I know that a

 resource is being produced and that past Presidents have contributed to it and I

 commend it to you.

 

Lastly let me say that one of the things I believe we require to face the issues of the

 day is a spirit of generosity. This seems at odds with ever tightening budgets, but I

 am convinced that God’s ways are not the ways of the world and as the Spirit

 moves among us growing a spirit of generosity we will be amazed at what God will

 bring about.

 

So friends, as you enter into a season of prayer, thank you and may the Holy Spirit

 enflame your passion for God’s purposes through the Church.

 

Shalom,

 

Stuart McMillan

 President-elect

 15th May 2015.
