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.

Rest and relaxation
‘There no rest for the wicked’. I suspect that might have been meant to imply eternal rest. But perhaps those feeding off the greed of others for pleasure and war aren’t bothered about much more than unearthly delights. We can be concerned for those caught up in the stresses of daily living which in the modern age mean driving to childcare and school and work and after school activities. The stressors will vary according to status but almost always are frenetic. Those whose time is captured by entertainment in a myriad of forms suffer debilitating stress rather than relaxation. Perhaps all we can do is to make sure our spiritual feet are up and resting so we will be ready for God’s call in the crises that will inevitably occur.
And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done. Genesis 2:2
As New Zealand is in the thoughts and prayers of people throughout the world, let us give thanks for the openhearted leaders of politics and faith during and after the shootings in Christchurch. May our Mothers’ Union members respond to any in need with the quiet assurance of God’s love for all.
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.
