A Wonderful Opportunity This Monday to Deepen Our Experience of Healing

November 5, 2011

A tremendous opportunity to deepen our experience of healing has fallen into our laps at St. Paul’s. The Reverend Derek Lightbourne, Warden Emeritus of the Order of St. Luke in New Zealand, and the Convenor of the next International Conference of OSL, is visiting family in Calgary, and has graciously offered to lead us in an evening exploring the contribution of the Gospel According to St. Luke to our understanding of Jesus’ healing ministry (on which he has prepared a postgraduate minithesis); and then praying for those in special need. We shall gather in the Sanctuary this Monday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. It goes without saying that we shall especially be remembering Len and Lynda Mountford in prayer together. We shall also be remembering others known to and loved by us who are in particular need of our Lord’s healing touch. Please spread the word to as many people as you can, so that as many of us as possible can come and unite in opening ourselves as never before to God’s working in us and through us by the Holy Spirit. Many thanks to Nicola Peden, Dinah Breu, the other members of our Prayer Group, and (of course) the Reverend Lightbourne, for enabling this evening of deepening our experience of healing to take place. 

If you would like to get to know the Reverend Lightbourne better, twelve of his sermons can be accessed at  http://www.stjames.net.nz/page_id=5&preacher=5. A 2006 interview in which he shares his vision of the Church as an agent of healing for children and families can be accessed at http://www.assistnews.net/Stories/2006/s06070096.htm.
