Intercessory Prayers 18.9.2011.

Today the journey feels as though it has really begun.  At a packed service at GMC which included fan infant christening (which is always interesting) two adult baptisms, with a further person entering into membership, and holy communion, I was asked to lead the intercessory prayers slot.  This I did via a powerpoint.  With the assistance of the IT guys the presentation went well.  Initial comments have been positive.  Nothing went too pearshaped.  I look forward now to the next challenge.  I understand that there is not going to be a local preachers meeting until November so I am in a bit of a limbo situation regarding the training at present.  However, this may be a blessing from God and I will accept it as such.  The reading today focussed on the baptism of Jesus from Marks Gospel, and ended with Jesus enduring 40 days of temptation in the desert.  I wonder how I would have coped? I got the feeling that the scripture was speaking to me.  Does this me…
Next Sunday 18th I have been asked to lead the intercessory prayers.  It plans to be a busy service with an infant baptism, an adult baptism and holy communion.

This marks the beginning of my practical journey towards being a local preacher which is very exciting, whilst at the same time a little scary.  I have created a power point for this.  i will post next after the service to post a reflective peice.
