Thought for the Week from AMUA (15th - 21st October 2017)

Overcoming poverty

God of justice, you set your face against poverty. Help us to discern the very real poverty of those without adequate food, clothing and shelter and to look honestly at our own poverty of spirit when we fail in generosity, when we judge others too harshly, and when we turn away from being your means of love and grace to the poor.

 I know that the Lord maintains the cause of the needy, and executes justice for the poor. Psalm 140: 12

 About 120 Mothers’ Union members in Guinea were the ‘hands and feet on the ground’ during the Ebola epidemic and they continue disaster work, supporting survivors after a fire which left families without food or clothing. At their annual Conference, Anglican women from ten dioceses in Brazil shared their stories of support for abused women, the young and immigrants, of art therapy for the elderly and a health project. Members work in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to maintain the cause of the needy.
