11 Dec Day 9: Giftings
#Then: Mr Arthur Wright was a young carpenter and builder who worked in Mozambique and built, amongst other things, this wonderful Bishop’s throne. He gave his giftings to the Lord in service for the building up of the Anglican churches in Mozambique.
#Now: This chair is still sitting in Maciene and being used by clergy still serving the Lord. What gifts do you have that can be used in service of the Lord?
Lord Jesus, show us how we can better serve you and use our gifts to support the dioceses of Lebombo, Niassa and Angola and our local communities. Amen.
