Thought for the Week from AMUA (21st-27th January 2018)

CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

‘We are the Body of Christ’: this is our song. Let us strive to put aside the darkness of disagreement and competitiveness so that Christ’s light brings a glow of love to our shared purpose.

If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1John 1: 7

We thank God for members in Nigeria who have reached out with compassion to effect changes in lives of women and girls. Mothers’ Union in Christian fellowship intervened when a 13 year old girl was forced into marriage, so that ‘the father was prevailed upon to allow the girl to go to school’ and when a young widow was deprived of her possessions she was supported.

Thought for the Week from AMUA: New Year and 7th January 2018

NEW YEAR

We have work ahead of us as we activate the process for identifying the future needs of Mothers’ Union Worldwide. We thank God for the leadership of Lynne Tembey. The collective work is also the personal. May God guide each of us to LISTEN, OBSERVE and ACT as we faithfully open our hearts and minds to all things new.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight. In all your way acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Mothers’ Union members in Lesotho are ‘a listening ear’ when visiting the housebound and those in hospital and prison. They try to ascertain what is needed so they can pray and take action. In Swaziland members support the Safe Water Ministry Team as drought threatens access to clean water. We give thanks for their commitment to community outreach.

MOTHERS’ UNION MISSION

Love is Jesus’ way. Lynne Tembey reminds us that we are ‘committed to love in service’ and should ‘strive for equality in every area’. Loving God,

To serve by love – O teach us how:

Be this our great vocation,

To comfort grief, to seek the lost

With message of salvation;

In loving may our full hearts beat,

Our words be wise and winning;

In helping others may our joy

Have ever new beginning. AHB 534

 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and your neighbour as yourself. Luke 10: 27

Let us thank God that in Mauritius, DP Shirley Gully has ‘a priority to contribute to the wellbeing of all’ and that nn the Seychelles members joined in a march with the Women in Action and Solidarity Organisation as part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence.
