Our theme resources for 2019 have been created both to help engagement in the continuing global listening process and to build faith for the future. Some of the 2018 resources continue to be appropriate for this year’s focus.
Sunday 16 June 2019
As the abuse of women and children in institutions, homes and churches is made public, we pray that models of fatherhood are defined according to the nature of God presented in the Christian scriptures through his Son, Jesus. The father of the prodigal son runs to greet him who disobeyed and dishonoured him. Hear our prayers, heavenly Father, for your loving kindness to tend us. May the Mothers’ Union be strong in guiding fathers and mothers into the way of love.
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. 1 John 3:1a
Members of Mothers’ Union in Jamaica have been both mother and father to an elderly lady. From living in a dark and poorly ventilated room from which she was unable to leave, she moved into her own house, funded, built and furnished with the loving, respectful care of the children of God.
The Worldwide President is
Mrs Sheran Harper.
Sheran is from Guyana, part of the Anglican Church in the Province of the West Indies and has made history as the first non-British Worldwide President of MU.
