Anne Wright reports from Woodbridge St Mary's branch:
MOTHERS UNION 16 Days of Activism
At this time of year we think about gender based violence, spreading the word and praying for those damaged by these actions.
In the past few years we have had prayer meetings which were not very well attended so this year our Branch leaders decided to use this theme for our November meeting.
We used the service taken from the MU website. There were readings, prayers and reflection and an activity for all. Members were given a cut out hand shape and with a little prompting of ideas, asked to write a prayer on the hand. ‘Jesus has no hands on earth but yours’ .
The hands were made into a display for our MU notice board in church.
