With Love to the World
The 2016 edition of this booklet is starting early in February. There will be four booklets over a year. Each day there is a Bible reading, and a short commentary on the reading, with a prayer.  What is special about the readings, is they are covering the theme, and preparing you for the following Sunday worship.  You will be able to get more out of the service, in your anticipation of having followed the lectionary readings through the week.
Why not add your name to the list on the office counter, with your phone number. Each booklet is $5, which contains, much more, with stories, preparing to hear God’s word, and meaningful art work. The commentaries are prepared by retired ministers of the word. 
Could the people who have been subscribing, please add your name to the list also. It is worth giving the first edition a go!
