Women’s World Day of Prayer 2015
This year the Women’s World Day of Prayer was prepared by women from The
Bahamas. They have been participating in this event for 65 years.
The theme for 2015 being:-
“Do you know what I have done for you?”
John13: 1 -17.
On March 6th we had sunshine coming through the windows of St
Barnabas and thanks to many who had parts in the service an array of
cheerful bright clothes inside.
The service did not include a speaker this year.
In keeping with the theme of washing the feet we were asked to provide
footprint shaped notelets for the congregation to write on, on how they
could show radical love to others.
We also had larger footprints with names of Bahamian Islands on them
placed on the floor leading to the altar. In the informative book the
committee members have, we found the prayer of the big toe which was
ably read at both services.
Including those taking part there were 61 at the morning service and 31
in the evening.
This year our committee had a different makeup. The Baptist Church were
unable to take part, but we did have a new member from St Martins and
also one from St Josephs.
Ruth Mey and I have now handed the baton on to Christ Church for the
2016 service arranged by women from Cuba. The services are always
prepared by women but are not exclusively for women.
The theme is “Receive children, Receive me”.
