Mothers' Union worldwide
The Philippians lived amid the bustling of traders and travellers passing through between ‘Italy’ and ‘Turkey’. It was probably like any large shopping centre: noisy, full of cheap/expense stuff, tempting. It’s a big and ever-present task to be blameless and innocent in the midst of consumer envy, promotional ladders – for the Philippians – and us. Mothers’ Union as an organisation is as subject to perversions as any other so it behoves each member to hold fast to the Word of Life, to honestly examine their motives and thus to shine like a star.
May you be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine like stars in the world. It is by your holding fast to the word of life that I can boast on the day of Christ that I did not run in vain or labour in vain. Philippians 2: 15-16
Vicoba is a Credit and Savings programme in Tanzania. All MU Vicoba groups report that members are primarily using their loans to start small businesses that benefit their families. We give thanks for this initiative and pray that those participating remain blameless and innocent in their deals; shining like stars.

The first Mothers' Union virtual gathering of its kind, this event features stories of how the movement is building hope and confidence across Britain and Ireland
and around the world.
After an opening prayer from the Rt Revd Dr Emma Ineson, there are general updates, as well as impact stories from members as far afield as Argentina and Myanmar.
The second part focuses on how Mothers' Union is growing God's Kingdom in Britain and Ireland.
