Executive Committee Nominees Share Their Views

We have had an outstanding field of candidates nominated for the Executive Committee "Ordinary Member" Roles. We'd love all our members to get to know these folks a little better, so we invited them to write us a short piece for the website. What follows is a fascinating mix of subjects that reflects a little of the diversity we see amongst our membership today. I commend all of these members to you:- read, reflect, share and comment on their pieces. We look forward to the results of the election and I'm sure we'll be hearing from all of these fine folk soon.

Delà des Frontiers (Beyond Borders)

1913772_10153156881567447_201371647888274979_n_(1).jpgLast week I was at a prayer meeting where I was asked to pray for Europe. Having been at a meeting in Brussels the previous week regarding the refugee crisis, and with the EU referendum on the horizon it felt like a good time to pray ‘Lord would your kingdom come and your will be done’.

Below is a prayer that echoes the cry of my heart and I hope will be a resource to you.
