PRESBYTERY NEWS FROM
THE PRESBYTERY OF SOUTH WEST SCOTLAND
At the recent South West Scotland Presbytery meeting we heard how a speaker believed we all might better connect with our community.
*Be a walk and talk church -be visible -be inviting. Make your morning prayer "Lord, who do you want me to speak to today?"
Make sure you chat to anybody and everybody in every day life, be approachable.
*He used the acronym ACORN to explain his spiritual practice for mission
A. Ask- Pray is there someone God wants me to connect with?
C. Call- After our daily prayer we are called to action
O. Obey - Trust and obey as the hymn says. Our greeting might be "how are you?"
Gods call to us is "where are you?"
R. Report.- Testimony, Christians together connecting, considering.
N. Notice. - What is God doing in the present day? Not in the past, not in the future but concentrate on TODAY.
Food for thought!
