Hope: ‘By God’s great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.’ (1 Peter 1:3-5)
Give thanks for the living hope we have in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Death of Death, and Hell’s Destruction as the famous Welsh hymn puts it.
Give thanks for the Nippon Sei Ko Kai, the Anglican Church in Japan, remembering especially today their ministry in a predominantly non-Christian context.
