Prayer for Today

1   Today saw the birth of George Cadbury in 1839, renowned for starting to produce the Cadbury’s chocolate that we now know.

2   He moved the factory from Birmingham itself to a new site outside the city, which he called ‘Bournville’. He is well-remembered for building there a 250-acre village of good, spacious houses for all his workers. Each house had a garden, and the village had wide open spaces - remarkable conditions for workers of the 1800s. George Cadbury sold the houses to the workers at cost price on very reasonable loans.

3   The money spent on such excellent facilities reflected the value that George Cadbury placed in each of his workers and their families. He was a committed Christian, and a member of the ‘Society of Friends’, more generally known as ‘Quakers’.

4 Let us pray:

Lord God,
may others respect and value me
as much as I do them.

Prayer for the Week

God our Father, the Bible reminds us that your love for each of us in great and that you are faithful forever never letting us down.  Inspire us to value fellowship and loyalty, and to grow in faithfulness to those who love and trust us. Amen

Prayer for Teachers and Learners:  Almighty God, our heavenly Father, you have committed to your holy Church the care and nurture of your children: Enlighten with your wisdom those who teach and those who learn; that, rejoicing in the knowledge of your truth, they may worship you and serve you all the days of their life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Praying Each Day for September 6

1 On this day in 1997, the funeral of Diana,
the young Princess of Wales, was held
in Westminster Abbey. The following
words were sung, and they can be our
words of commitment today:

2 I would be true
- for there are those who trust me.
I would be pure
- for there are those who care.
I would be strong
- for there is much to suffer.
I would be brave
- for there is much to dare.

3 I would be friend of all,
the foe, the friendless.
I would be giving,
and forget the gift.
I would be humble,
for I know my weakness.
I would look up,
laugh, love and live

‘Praying Each Day of the Year’,

Baptism at St. Peter's

    A baptism is always a time to celebrate and praise God for all his blessings.  On Sunday past we had a baptism at St. Peter's in Alberton - that of Layney Wanda Blair Smith, daughter of Lisa Marie and Kevin Benjamin Smith and sister to Landen Terrance Lee Smith.
 In His Constant Care
By artist Simon Dewey
      Biography of Artist: Simon Dewey was born in London, England. His father was an amateur artist who instilled in Simon a love for art. Simon studied for a while at a London art college, but later decided to work by himself to develop his talents. He soon had established a reputation as an excellent illustrator in London publishing circles.
     Simon came to find that his true love was in the painting of images of events found in the scriptures. These images received significant approval, and this encouraged Simon to enter the world of fine art. As Simon's talents have grown over the years, he has developed a truly special ability to portray the Savior Jesus Christ. His works bring us close to the Savior as they radiate love and compassion to all who view them.
     Simon currently lives in Cardston, Alberta with his wife and five children.
