POEMS for Tony Bower about Bible Stories

Traveling together: Faith isn't shipwrecked! (W/B 28 06 2020)

We continue with Paul's journeys spreading God's love and knowing God is with you always as you travel on life's journeys. In this collective worship we explore the different journeys we make as we set out into the world. We think about where our travels take us, how we don't have to travel alone, and how God's love never fails. All with a game, the story of Paul's shipwreck, a song and a prayer activity! 

Paul's Missionary Journeys Song

See where Paul went on his Missionary Journeys and read the book of Acts with a new perspective!

Dear Lord

Please send forth your holy spirit into all of our hearts and souls. Let

us all celebrate your love and the beauty of your creation.

Inspire us to show kindness and equality to all of those around us

whatever or wherever we come from.

Let us all be strengthened by your wisdom from on high and let us be

thankful for all new days that are full of hope, possibility and joy.

Amen  ~  Prayer by Henry Cole
