Thought for the Week 27 October 2019

Anglican Mothers Union Australia

God’s People throughout the ages

There is a boom of interest in family history. The Church’s family history can be a great source of inspiration. The more we know where we came from the more considered will be our expectations and understanding of our faith and our Anglican tradition. Mary Sumner is just one of a great procession of women who ministered and held the faith in rocky times. From the Samaritan Woman at the Well and Mary Magdalene to the early virgin martyrs to wise teachers, Julian of Norwich and Margaret of Scotland. Find your hero and read her story

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us. Hebrews 12:1

We thank God for the faithful witness of Mothers’ Union in Mozambique. We pray for the leaders who have developed skills and faith to enable them to continue the ministry of women in Jesus’ name.
