CHRIST CHURCH, ST ANDREW’S AND ST MICHAEL’S         

 

3RD FEBRUARY 2024

 

Hello everyone!

 

Lord God, Eternal Wisdom, shine in our lives,

that we may delight in you and your light.

Enlighten our minds,

that we may know you as the true God,

the Maker, Redeemer and Sustainer of all things. Amen.

 

This week, one of our readings, from Colossians, talks about the image of the invisible God, and the picture below is one that appeared with the description – immortal invisible, God only wise, a good place to start as we embark upon our Lenten journey.
