U Matters

The political situation in Hong Kong has reduced me to prayer. The protesters, the police, the government, and people whose lives have been disrupted have been in my thoughts and prayers. These are exciting and anxious times, so I am also reduced to reading my Bible. One of my favorite verses is Psalms 64:10, It is usually translated, “Be still and know that I am God.” The MESSAGE translation speaks to me in the middle of the excitement and concern of what is happening in Hong Kong: "Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.

God will overrule us all” as Mother Theresa used to say. Let’s all be prayerful and Jesus focused as he calls each of us to minister in these critical times.

Building Union For the Future

Special Evening of Prayer & Worship - Tue, 14 Oct, 7:30-9:00PM 

To grow spiritual roots, along with physical roots, join us for a special evening of prayer and worship for Building Union For The Future. Let us pray, that when God has prepared our heart for redevelopment, He would also teach our tongues to answer the thoughts and desires of the heart and to express them in words suitable and answering to all of our, Union Church's, inward spiritual feelings. A fitting variety of expression, and holy prayer, is one of these good and perfect gifts that come from above, from God, the Father of Lights and Knowledge. James 1:17
