Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you enter your kingdom.” He said, “Don’t worry, I will. Today you will join me in paradise.”
Luke 23:42-43 (Message)

Help us Father God to seek your kingdom in the here and now and not to concentrate solely on the kingdom to come. Enable us through the power of your Holy Spirit to combat oppression and injustice.
Amen

In Paradise with me
This day I will be with you in Paradise.
Paradise Place, Lord? I know it well.
Back to back houses with back to back people.
Not like the old days:‑
Streets ringing with laughter like washing
And neighbours popping in like pints.
Now scullery rats run scared and scream
And television winks in jest
Like some surrogate company.
People bolt all contact out.
Old age lies battered on the kitchen floor,
And young unemployed sit in solo empty rooms.
Families feud, boarding up their turmoil from prying eyes, And hope awaits its demolition.
A reconstruction job in Paradise Street, Lord.
Will you meet me there?

John Rawnsley

Escape to Egypt

A group of Christian Aid staff and supporters will be walking from Bethlehem (Carmarthenshire) to Aiift (Egypt, Denbighshire) to raise money for Christian Aid’s Christmas appeal and to show solidarity with and challenge the negative image created of refugees by politicians and the media.

The poster on the back page gives information about the special service to close the walk which will be held in St Asaph Cathedral on Thursday Dec 15th at 7pm. It will be a symbolic gesture of our longing to welcome refugees and give them sanctuary.

If it’s not possible for you to go to the service, perhaps you’d care to sponsor Christian Aid – you can do that Here
