“This is the day which the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it…”
(Psalm 117 v. 24)
What a beautiful Spring we have had this year! And now, after the joys of new life, the Resurrection and of Easter, we look forward to Pentecost – the coming of the Holy Spirit, the empowering of the disciples and the birth of the early church. Praise the Lord for His provision and the wonderful opportunities we have this month for spreading His love among our families, friends and neighbours. Here are a few suggestions you might like to consider:-
1 One might be through a new translation of the Bible, called “The Passion”. At the moment it is being published in individual booklets, mostly at £9.99. In stock we have ‘Grace and Glory’ (Romans), ‘Eternal Lord’ (John’s Gospel), ‘Letters from Heaven’ (Paul’s letters) and at £13.99 ‘Poetry on Fire’ (the Psalms).
2 Have you looked at the new amusing books by Jeff Lucas to enjoy over the summer? You could choose ‘It’s a Dog’s Life’ – finding the profound in the peculiar and ‘The Cactus Stabbers’ and other bizarre encounters and reflections.
3 Have you heard about a new Family Devotional, called “All Together”, by Steve and Bekah Legg? Jeremy Vine, on Radio 2, has recommended it so come in and take a look.
4 This is also an ideal time to choose prizes for Sunday School or Junior Church. Please do come in and browse and see what’s on offer.
5 Another might be by sending a card with a discrete Christian message. Have you seen the new boxes of cards from Dayspring – a lovely selection of twelve for different occasions? Priced between £3.99 and £4.99 a box they’re good to have in hand if you can’t get out for any reason.
6 And remember Fathers’ Day - a wonderful opportunity to show Dad how much he’s loved by giving him a card and gift from New Creation.
So come in and browse and while in the shop, why not take advantage of Penny’s tasty Special for June – a toasted teacake with a hot drink for £2.30. Enjoy!
“Thy Kingdom Come” – the global wave of prayer
We are all aware of the problems our world is going through at the moment. Between 25th May (Ascension Day) and 4th June (Pentecost), communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours would come to know Jesus Christ. To find out more please visit the web-site: www.thykingdomcome.global.
Please pray for all these initiatives and for us as we try to reach as many people as possible with God’s word.
Have a happy, holy and blessed month and may the Lord be with you all.
