Christ the King

Jesus the king wore a crown of thorns; his throne was a cross; his royal banner a scribbled sign.

This is the gospel image of royalty; the king and a criminal going together into paradise. This is the king we believe in; the king we celebrate and whose values we are pledged to live by.

May his kingdom come. May we be accepting of his authority in our lives and may we serve him. Jesus – Christ the King

Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly

Shortly after the destruction, the cathedral stonemason noticed that two of the charred medieval roof timbers had fallen in the shape of a cross.

He set them up in the ruins where they were later placed on an altar of rubble with the moving words ‘Father Forgive’ inscribed on the Sanctuary wall.

Another cross was fashioned from three medieval nails by a local priest. The Cross of Nails has become the symbol of Coventry’s ministry of reconciliation.

For all the Saints

The grace of God shows its full colours in the glory that is at work in all of God’s people who are called to be saints.

That grace which is at work in you, the saints of God who are in Bury.

The real and ordinary people who here and now hold in your hands the invitation to that wedding, along with those invited and called from the first days of Christianity until today, from every country in the world.

What’s important to you?

What is important to you? What is worth fighting for? What would make you be determined and persistent, not give up on, not be put off until you got it sorted?

Is there something that you are so passionate about that you would stick with it and be prepared to struggle for as long as it takes? What would make you like a terrier who has got a shoe in his teeth and won’t let go?
