Community of prayer

I just want to encourage you once again to join our community of prayer for Lent. Rev David Halstead is emailing a meditation for each day and, already, they have been really engaging. I attach the first two days so you can see their style and approach. It’s not too late to join in – we already have over 100 people taking part but we can easily accommodate some more. Please join us.

Prayers for healing and wholeness

The service of prayers for healing and wholeness is not being held in St John’s, Llandudno, during January and February but continues online. Today’s reflection is shared with us by local preacher Richard Butler. Thank you, Richard.

‘My grace is sufficient for you,
For my power is made perfect in weakness’ (2 Cor 12:9)

In the ministry of Christ healing was a sign of the presence of God’s kingdom, bringing renewal and wholeness of life to those who turned to God in their need.  Jesus commissioned his disciples to proclaim the kingdom and heal the sick (Luke 9:2).  The Church believes that the healing power of Christ is exercised through medical and related professions, through faith and prayer, and the care of the Christian community. 

God desires wholeness for all people. We bring to God our frailty and brokenness  –  felt not only in physical illness, but in guilt, anxiety, and all the burdens which weigh us down.  We also bring our concerns for others and for the world. We come to God who knows our needs before we ask, and whose love revealed in Jesus Christ is stronger than suffering and death.

To start, take some time to bring yourself into an awareness of the presence of God. If it helps, imagine yourself sitting in your church alone, resting in the prayerful atmosphere.

Jesus said:  ‘Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.’ Matt 11:28-30

Jesus said:  ‘I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.’ John 10:10

Loving God,
in whom all things are made whole,
you sent your Son our Saviour to heal a broken world.
Visit us with your salvation,
that we may be blessed in body, mind and spirit;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said:
‘Anyone who comes to me I will never turn away.’ (John 6:37)

In the presence of God, let us confess our sins.

Lord Jesus, you came to reconcile us to God and to one another.
Lord Jesus, you heal the wounds of sin and division.
Lord Jesus, you offer us a new beginning.
Lord, have mercy.  Christ, have mercy.

God is love.  Through Jesus our sins are forgiven.
Let us live in the power of the Spirit.  Amen.

Holy God, you give life to all;
you meet us in our need
and bring hope to those who look to you.
Give peace to our hearts and minds as we pray to you with confidence;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Reflection:
John 5:1-13

Jesus was in Jerusalem for the feast of the Jews; John in his gospel goes into much detail of this event; it is remarkable to read; Jesus, he says, is near to the sheep gate pool! It appears according to Jewish tradition the pool had some kind of healing properties; many were there ; some disabled; some blind; some lame; others paralysed, there with hope of having their lives changed with healing. It appears that tradition stated only the first one to enter the pool when the water stirred would be healed; imagine the rush to be first!

When the story is read your heart goes out to all who were gathered around the pool; unless you have a good friend or a family member to help you; getting into the water first would have been almost impossible in the rush that ensued.

The man in our story it seems had been by the pool for years; how many we don’t know! There was no one to help him, but his faith in the pools healing properties remained.

The story goes an Angel would come and stir the water from time to time; seems strange an Angel would only help one, the God I believe in would send an angel to help many, not just one.

Perhaps at some time someone was healed when the water was stirred, the story spread and gave hope to many, that is why so many were there, waiting, filled with hope.

The story gave hope to many, or maybe distress to those who were waiting for some kind of miracle to happen.

If the story of the pool had not been known, then the healing wouldn’t have happened, Jesus wouldn’t have been there, nor the poor man the story tells us of.

Hope led the man there, through that hope he met Jesus, he never gave up the hope of being healed; Jesus had great compassion for him, he said “pick up your mat and walk”; at once the man was healed, the faith he had in the pool; that Gods Angel would heal him was enough for Jesus, he knew God would want to help. There were no great crowds to see the healing; but the  great compassion Jesus had for the man shows through the story.

Sadly the story has a twist; the Jewish leaders of those times didn’t rejoice in the healing Jesus did, the new life given to the man, instead they accused the man of law breaking! Carrying his sick mat on the Sabbath day, well how terrible of the man who had just been healed after years of not being able to walk; breaking the man made rules for carrying his sick mat.

Today in our world with what is going on in our counties, blame for those in charge, people often ignoring the rules given to help us all. Today many are living without hope, people living in fear of catching the deadly virus that has taken so many lives.

But there is hope, Jesus left us with hope, left us his wonderful spirit to help us in our times of need; now is that time, we need his help in our world today, we find that help through prayer and sharing our troubles with those around us, helping each other, caring for each other, sharing in Gods love for us, it gives us comfort, it gives us hope.

The man in our story never gave up hope, that much shows through.

When our world has been facing fear that seems to grip us all, through our prayers we find hope through the God given skills of our scientists, so many now receiving the vaccine  we have prayed for ; reminding us he is here with each one of us in our troubles, if we just let him into our lives.

The power of hope and faith in all he stands for, the power of the Lord in our world, there for each one of us if we place our trust in him, our faith to help us in our greatest times of need.

Healing and wholeness comes in so many different ways, but it will always be there for each of us. AMEN

We continue in prayer:

We thank you, gracious God.
You have loved us from the beginning of time
and remembered us when we were in trouble.
Your mercy endures for ever.

We thank you, redeeming God.
You have come to us in Jesus Christ
to save us from our sins.
Your mercy endures for ever.

We thank you, holy God.

to comfort us and lead us into all truth.
Your mercy endures for ever.

Gracious, redeeming and Holy God,
glory and praise be yours, now and for ever.  Amen

Take some time now to bring your concerns to God. If it helps, try saying them out loud. Feel yourself held in God’s safe hands.

We say the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples:

Our Father in Heaven
Hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil,
For the kingdom, the
power and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.  Amen

Almighty God,
you have made us for yourself
and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you.
Teach us to offer ourselves to your service,
that here we may have your peace,
and in the world to come we may see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord look on you with kindness
and give you peace.  Amen.

Go in peace to rejoice in God’s love
and to reflect his glory.
May the Lord go with us and grant us the joy of Jesus Christ.  Amen.

Supporting charities during the pandemic

It has been a terrible time for charities just like most other parts of the economy – income has dropped significantly but the need remains.

Several charities have made attempts to find ways of increasing their income using the pandemic itself as a starting point. Two at the moment are:

Christian Aid
Sue Coleman of Cytun Colwyn Bay says: There is currently a way through Christian Aid to give thanks for having your Covid vaccine by giving a donation that can help protect the most vulnerable people, while the vaccine is out of reach. Each dose of the Pfizer vaccine costs around £15 and each dose of the Oxford/Zeneca vaccine costs around £3. Maybe you would like to join this initiative, perhaps as a way of giving this Lent. If so, the details can be found here.

Bible Society
It’s the custom , for some people, to GIVE-UP something for LENT – like chocolate or puddings! HOW ABOUT “GIVING”, instead? A “Rescue & Recovery Fund” has been created to support Bible Society’s Ministry in 88 nations, where staff are struggling to work with vulnerable communities. We know that spiritual food sustains in difficult times, with God’s Word of Hope & Comfort. THE CHALLENGE IS – HOW MANY BIBLES DO YOU HAVE? WOULD YOU, for EACH ONE, GIVE £2…..£5……. £10 to Bible Society this LENT, for the work to continue to produce Bibles for people in their mother -tongue? Cheques, made payable to Bible Society, should be sent to: Dr Margaret Macaulay, Apt 36, Cwrt Gloddaeth, Gloddaeth St. LLANDUDNO LL30 2DP or by Bank Transfer (details available from Bev). Please will you PRAY for Bible Societies at risk of closing & for the 500 projects under threat. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND GIFTS. D. Roberts (Chair), K. Morris (Sec) M. Macaulay (Treas.) Llandudno B. Soc, Action Group

Sunday Worship

This Sunday’s worship (21st February) is via livestream only at 10am (a recorded version becomes available later in the day). You can find it here.

Worship is led by Mark Ramsden and the theme is “Into the wilderness.”

Pastoral visitors (and others) may wish to print off the text version below and drop it round to those who cannot access the online service. Thank you for your care.

For those who want to try out a different approach, you might be interested in this new initiative by the Joint Public Issues Team of the Methodist Church (and others) – Politics in the Pulpit. You can find it here.

Take Care of Yourself – 6

This is the last of our series on how to take care of ourselves in these difficult times. Again, my comments are based on the book by Pablo Martinez, Take Care of Yourself, publishers Hendrickson. It has been suggested that I should turn this short series into a booklet for those who cannot access the internet version or who would like a copy to hand. If you think this would be helpful please let me know and I will investigate what might be possible.

Last time we looked at various ways in which we can take care of ourselves, avoid weariness and exhaustion, and find renewal. But there was one suggestion that was not followed up in any detail – nurturing our relationship with God. That is what we will do now.

Be still and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10

Many Christians are good at looking after others spiritual needs but fail to look after their own. Ministers can be particularly bad at this – I remember a minister colleague once telling me about the pattern of their daily life and it became clear that they had no regular prayer time, no daily quiet time. No wonder they dashed from one thing to another without reflection and prioritisation, exhausting themselves (and confusing others) in the process.

It is important for all of us to take time with God, not because we have to but because we want to, for our own needs and spiritual pleasure. An orderly, at peace (even in troubled times) Christian life will never be possible without this one fundamental – a disciplined approach to spiritual nourishment.

The first, and most important, step in taking care of yourself is to nourish your spirituality, your relationship with God – Father, Son and Spirit.

The Vital Connection

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit;
apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:4-5

These are strong words – “apart from me you can do nothing.” Why do we not take them to heart? Our connection to Christ is of paramount importance. In the same way that a branch needs to be nourished from the sap of the tree’s trunk so we need to be nourished by Jesus.

Blessed is the one…whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither –
whatever they do prospers.

Psalm 1:4-5

Psalm 1 makes clear that we need to spend time with God in scripture (“meditating on his law”) and Psalm 46 (top) makes clear that we need to spend time in quietness, stillness, before God – this is the pure heart of prayer (the opposite of a torrent of words!). Stillness can be difficult if we are stressed or distressed but the more upset we are the more we need to rest in God to receive this stillness from him.

When we are still before God we receive:

1. Rest that settles our agitation. We can be renewed by Christ’s rest if we remember that he is with us (Matthew 28:20), he understands us (Hebrews 4:15), he intercedes for us (Hebrews 7:25), he provides a way out of every trial (1 Corinthians 10:13)

2. Strength for what lies ahead. Our natural reaction to need may well be action but God invites us to rest and gain strength from him before we do anything. This may feel counterintuitive but we must learn this hard lesson if we are to reach maturity of faith. “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.” (Isaiah 30:15)

3. Clarity, and guidance that relieves our anxiety. Perhaps my most frequent prayer is to ask God for discernment, for wisdom to understand a situation and make the right decisions. If we do not spend quiet time with God then we cannot hope to get instructions from him on either daily life or important plans. Spending time with God, talking things through with him, brings clarity to our lives, the ability to discern between the important and the urgent. It enables prioritisation, it puts things into perspective, God’s perspective. We need to put our lives under the “gaze of God.” (Martinez)

4. Joy that dissipates our disappointment. As we spend time with God in intimate relationship our joy increases. God intended our relationship with him to be a joy not a burden. If your prayer life is filled with guilt rather than pleasure, something is horribly wrong. Start again! Start from the premise that God loves you, that God wants to hear from you about all the details of your life, that God wants to encourage you and enable you to live life in all its fullness. Paul exhorts us, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again, rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4)

5. Hope that banishes weariness and despair. Hope is the oxygen of the Christian’s life. Without it our vitality is lost. What do we need to do to have lasting hope? We need to fix our eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2). If we can do that every problem, every burden, every trial and trouble sits within the perspective of Christ, who “for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” An image that I hold close in times of trouble is of Jesus a little way ahead of me on the path, not striding ahead but glancing back at me, smiling and beckoning, “Come on, you’re safe with me.” That is my visual image of hope.

Quiet Times

Jesus is our model in all things. He sets the perfect example of how to spend time with our his (and our) heavenly Father. His times of prayer and reflection were a major source of power in his ministry. He often withdrew to places of solitude to pray.

Rest does not come automatically. It requires determination, discipline and effort. “The blessing of renewal requires the discipline of rest.” (Martinez)

Thus there is a definite rhythm in Jesus’ approach – the need for balance between action and pause, between output and input. Quiet times are not a luxury but a necessity. And the busier we are the more we need to pause, rest and renew. “Come away with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest,” Jesus said to his disciples (Mark 6:31). He says that to us too. Maybe we should print that and put it up somewhere so we are reminded at key moments in our day…

How did Jesus spend his times of quiet? He prayed and he meditated. I looked up the meaning of the word meditation – the Cambridge Dictionary says that meditation is “the act of giving your attention to only one thing, either as a religious activity or as a way of becoming calm and relaxed.” For the Christian, the purpose of meditation is to focus on the Father in order to become united with him, to focus on Jesus in order to become like him, to focus on the Spirit in order to gain wisdom and strength. It is a focus upwards more than a focus inwards, inspiration more than introspection. The Bible is our map and Jesus is our compass. With these to hand we will not get lost in introspection.

Restoration

Time with God not only gives us rest. It also renews us and enables us to continue our work. We cannot nourish others if we are not first nourished ourselves. The restoration we need is three-fold:

1. Renewal of our love for Jesus. As the church in Ephesus found (Revelation 2:1-7) it is possible to lose our motivation – “You have lost the love you had at first.” If our love of God is not the primary motivation for our actions as Christ’s disciples, our ministry and discipleship will weaken and fade. We may do lots of activity but our motivation moves to a place centred on self and our ministry dies.

2. Renewal of compassion. When we love Christ, we love his people, just as he loves them, despite their flaws and failures.

3. Renewal of vocation. Renewal of our compassion leads us to hear afresh our calling as Christ’s representatives, our commission to follow him and work with his Spirit for the coming of God’s kingdom.

Read the story of Peter’s restoration by Jesus if you need encouragement that Jesus wants to renew you too. See John 21:15-17.

We finish our six session series here. I hope it has been helpful. To conclude I leave you with some more Bible verses emphasising once again how the fundamental lesson for us in taking care of ourselves (and therefore readying us to help take care of others) is to take time to be still and rest in God.

He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
Psalm 23:2-3

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.
Psalm 37:7

My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Psalm 62:1-2

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:29-31

Thus says the LORD,
”Stand at the crossroads and look.
Ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is.
Walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.
Jeremiah 6:16

Lent study series – final call

Just a reminder that you can take part in our Lent study series this year either alone using the booklet (attached or available from me as a printed copy) or alongside others via zoom “gatherings” on Wednesdays at 10.30am starting this Wednesday 17th. If you wish to join the group you need to let me know so I can send you the zoom invitation.

The sessions will be more like coffee mornings than deep studies. We will simply read a portion of the booklet then have a conversation using the three discussion-starter questions that follow each one.

This Wednesday we will be reading the introduction and discussing our experiences of pilgrimage. It doesn’t matter whether you have any or not – I’ve got plenty to share, though I hope someone else has too!

See you then.

Reflective pondering

Here is this week’s reflection from our Superintendent Minister, Rev Janet Park. Thank you, Janet.

2 Kings 2:1-12

‘As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.’ (2 Kings 2:2)

These words are repeated three times during the Old Testament passage today: each time by Elisha reassuring Elijah of his company during the final phase of his life on this earth. A couple of weeks ago, Rev Bev spoke about the care God demonstrated to Elijah, as he faced his own personal ‘burn-out’ situation, witnessing the power of God bringing a lengthy drought to an end.

Now we hear stubborn determination from Elisha, expressing his care, in response to repeated requests to stay behind and allow the elderly prophet to go on ahead and be received into the hands of God. As a result of this conversation, Elijah continued to journey onward, with Elisha at his side, visiting Gilgal, Bethel, Jericho and the Jordan River for one last time – it seems they are reviewing the past together, through these important places in Hebrew history. Remembering together how God had guided His people through the Exodus to the promised land:

Gilgal – the place of new beginnings, where the people had first camped after crossing the Jordan river.

Bethel – the place where Abraham and Jacob had worshipped, yet currently a place desecrated with a golden calf becoming its’ idol for worship. Elijah was able to look beyond, and recall a time when it was a place of blessing and revival.

Jericho – the place where Joshua experienced his first victory in the promised land, reinforcing the understanding of receiving and responding obediently to God’s direction, the glory is given to God, becoming a victory of faith.

I wonder, where are the places you recall? Where is it that you have travelled from? Which places hold special significance for you? Places of homes and holidays, study and jobs, encounters of love and loss, of life and faith. Places of new beginnings, of faithful worship in years gone by, of blessing, birth and revival, of victories of faith where all the glory is given to God. During the past year we have had much time to recall and reflect, appreciate and give thanks: holding special moments close, as a comfort blanket, in the strange and anxious times we have been living through.

Together, these moments anchor us in history, both personal and corporate: learning lessons of faith and love that enable us to continue our journey together. And it becomes possible for these tangible memories to actually strengthen our faith to take the next step.

WH Auden wrote: ‘Man is a history-making creature who can neither repeat his past nor leave it behind.’ As we look back and review the past, we are actually preparing for the future – for transformation as we journey into Lent during the week ahead. Although Elijah ascended and disappeared from view, he was seen again, many years later, on the mountain-top with Jesus and Moses: during the transfiguration. You know the account, the encounter – dazzling white on a mountain-top, where (as Trevor Dennis describes it wonderfully) Jesus’ companions ‘walked straight into God and recognised him for the first time. He made the strange familiar, and the familiar strange.’

Are we ready for our transforming journey in 2021? What will you do, reflect, pray in these coming days- are you ready to take the risk that faith presents?

‘The Art of Lent’ by Sister Wendy Beckett, offers a painting a day from Ash Wednesday to Easter. This picture, ‘The Great Wave’ by Hokusai, begins the series on Wednesday. The image is created by a woodblock print, completed around 1830 by the Japanese artist Hokusai. The first time I looked, all I saw was waves on the sea, shades of blue and cream spray, captured in a snap shot of energy. Yet as I looked, the boats and people came into focus- with this enormous wave threatening the boats off the coast, overlooked by Mount Fuji.

You can find the picture here.

Sister Wendy writes: ‘We cannot control our life. The great wave is in waiting for any boat. It is unpredictable, as uncontrollable now as it was at the dawn of time. Will  the slender boats survive or will they be overwhelmed? The risk is a human constant: it has to be accepted and laid aside. What we can do, we do. Beyond that, we endure, our endurance framed by a sense of what matters and what does not.’

Hear the words of Elisha, remember the care God demonstrated to Elijah, watch the transfiguration in your mind’s eye, stand alongside Peter, James and John: be present with God as we travel towards Easter together.

‘As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.’ (2 Kings 2:2)

A Personal Prayer

God of the mountain-top and of the valley,
when the mountain is steep and I am tired,
bless me with your strength.
When the mountain is misty and I am afraid,
bless me with your peace.
When the mountain is covered in the snow of uncertainty,
bless me with your courage.
When the mountain is beautiful,
bless me with gratitude
and a sense of wonder that you are with me always.
Amen.

Lent Study Series

The Methodist Church’s Wales Learning Network has produced a lovely booklet on Pilgrimage in Wales, walking with the Saints. I will be using this as the basis of our Lent study series. The bilingual booklet can be found in the attached PDF (see below). Printed copies are also available from me and from your discipleship group leader.

Some groups may decide to meet (via zoom) to discuss amongst themselves. But I am also planning to use the Wednesday meditation slots to do the study series (as I have done in previous Lent seasons). The start time will be 10.30am and last up to 3/4 hour. I am choosing this time so we can have a cup of tea/coffee together while we discuss, and the format will be much more like a coffee morning chat than an in-depth study. Each will start with me (or another willing person) reading from the booklet then we will simply talk about what we have heard/read and take a look at the three discussion starter questions provided (all of which are about things from our personal experience).

We will start next Wednesday, 17th February at 10.30am with the booklet’s introduction and a conversation about pilgrimage which, as many of you will remember, is a “hot topic” of mine, having undertaken three pilgrimages during my sabbatical in 2015/16.

Please email me or send me a comment via the blog if you wish to receive the zoom invitation for these sessions. At the same time, let me know if you would like a printed copy of the booklet (which I recommend having).

Reach out for justice – climate change

Some of you are members of our Reach Out for Justice group. Even if you’re not, the event below may be of interest.

GETHIN ABRAHAM-WILLIAMS MEMORIAL LECTURE

Following his sabbatical periods during 2020 studying climate change, Cytûn’s Policy Officer, Rev. Gethin Rhys, has been invited to deliver the Gethin Abraham-Williams Memorial Lecture on Thursday May 20 at 5-6.30pm. This lecture will be held online.

Gethin said, “Many people call the comments of people like Greta Thunberg and some scientists, writers and campaigners about climate change ‘apocalyptic’ – consider the name ‘Extinction Rebellion’ for example. The same word is used to refer to parts of the Bible, such as sections of the Book of Daniel, Mark chapter 13 or the Book of Revelation. I have been considering the relationship between the old Biblical apocalyptic literature and the emerging secular apocalyptic. Is the idea of ‘apocalypse’ a sign of despair, or a sign of hope – as the Bible writers intended? That’s what I will be exploring in the lecture.”

The title of the lecture will be The End of the World? Christian apocalyptic and responses to climate change. It will be delivered bilingually, with simultaneous translation from Welsh to English, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end. Book online here.
