There’s a FAB day (Fairtrade Association Biggleswade
) next Saturday, 7 March at the Baptist Church in Biggleswade. It’s a day to raise awareness of the things that you buy every day for yourself or your family. There are loads of interesting events (see the poster below) so it should be a great day to enjoy as well as supporting Fairtrade around the world.
The organisation’s website is http://www.fabweb.org.uk/

“The Jewish people in Jesus’s day (and indeed in ours) awaited the consolation of Israel, the comfort that the Messiah would bring on his appearing (Isa 40:1 - 2). Simeon and Anna recognised immediately – clearly the work of the Holy Spirit – that Jesus was the Messiah, the ‘consolation of Israel’. Jesus is not just the consolation of Israel: he is the consolation of the whole world.”

Kodzo Selormey, a volunteer with the Society
, was at Church today talking about the Society and its work. He emphasised that the work continued, notwithstanding its move away from the Catholic Church because of new laws governing adoption agencies. He thanked the Parish for its support over the years and asked us to continue that support: by considering adoption, providing financial donation and by praying for the Society and the children that it helps.

The Small Faith Communities initiative of the Diocese of Westminster
has created a study booklet for the Autumn period which assesses St Paul’s life, his works, his travels and his teaching. The booklet
covers 6 weeks of study, from 19 October 2008, for both individuals and groups. Each week has a separate theme, namely: Paul the person; Paul and suffering; Paul and mystery/faith; Paul and Church; Paul and righteousness; and Paul and evangelisation.
Alban Macdonald is involved in an ecumenical bible study group in Sandy that will be using these booklets this Autumn and has arranged to get some additional booklets for others in the Parish who may be interested in studying St Paul too. For more information : see the page called Building Faith
or contact Alban Macdonald on 681537.
