Walking with Christ
The gospel according to St Mark is a fast-moving account of Jesus’s ministry. He had no sooner finished one miracle and ‘immediately’ he was accosted by a person in need and then ‘immediately’ he gathered up friends and they were ‘on the way’. There’s no leisurely stroll in Mark’s account. We can identify with this; but then we must also remember the times of solitude, prayer and relaxing. Jesus asleep on a cushion in a boat, at sea, during a storm. Jesus dining out with ‘sinners’. Jesus the story-teller par excellence. Jesus pampered with expensive ointment to everyone’s discomfort. Walking with Christ – it’s a roller-coaster ride. Deep breath.
He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,
and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6: 8
Mothers' Union in Nigeria is very active in creating opportunities for women and young girls to reach their full potential, working closely alongside the Women’s Guild in each diocese. Let us pray especially for those in extreme poverty who have no chance of a leisurely stroll or solitude with Christ.

We, the members of AMUA, offer our prayers and love to our Mothers' Union World Patron, The Queen, on the death of her beloved husband, Prince Philip.
We mourn his loss with their family, and members of the Commonwealth throughout the world.
Prince Philip's support for Her Majesty through their marriage of over 70 years has been a true blessing from God, and a wonderful example of stability in marriage and family life.
May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
