Notices for Sunday 22nd January 2017

I have a serious concern to bring up with you, my friends, using the authority of Jesus, our Master. I’ll put it as urgently as I can: You must get along with each other. You must learn to be considerate of one another, cultivating a life in common.
1 Cor 1:10 (Message)

Father God, remove from us the reluctance to get along with other people because we have differing views. Teach us to be considerate with one another.
Amen.

AVOW
Fri 27th January
10.00am – Noon
Memorial Hall Wrexham

Remembering all those affected by the holocaust and subsequent genocides throughout the world.

There will be speeches, displays and food samples from around the world where genocides have occurred.

There will be two minutes silence, with special remembrance for David Berger, a Polish Jew born 1915 in Przemysl. While the war was ongoing David had sent a group photo to his girlfriend, Elza Gross, who had left Poland for Palestine in 1938. His only wish was to be remembered. He wrote to Elza “If something happens, I would want there to be somebody who would remember that someone named D. Berger had once lived. David Berger was shot dead in Vilnius, Lithuania in 1941.

Please join us to remember those affected and consider the theme of “How can life go on?”
