Wishing all our members: in the Chelmsford Diocese a very exciting, New Year as we prepare to celebrate 140years of Mothers' Union. Joan

New Year Greetings: sent to all Chelmsford Mothers' Union members from your new President Judith Meaden

God won’t care what path you took to reach his kingdom, he will want to know how many people you helped along the way. God won’t care what nationality you were, he will want to know how many desperate people cared for and welcomed to your shore. Joan

I remember a meeting in Chelmsford to hear Barbara Lawes, a member of the overseas department at Mary Sumner House, explain the newly instigated Literacy Campaign. This coloured my whole interest in our wonderful organisation which continues to this day.... Pauline Briggs

Almighty God, In Christ you make all things new. Throughout this New Year, let your light shine in our hearts and minds, in the lives of those we love and in the broken world he came to heal. May our faith and trust in you grow stronger as we share with others the hope we have in you; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen Revd Mike Ketley.

Whilst we eat and drink and welcome in the New Year let us not forget those who are hungry, thirsty, tired and sick and are not looking forward to what the New Year might bring! Joan

As Paul and his companions approach Damascus to apprehend Christians, blinding light surrounds them and Paul falls to the ground. Then he hears a voice “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” (Acts 9:4) “Who are you, Lord?” Paul asks. The voice replies, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” Alan Vine

We were Reminded by Judith Meaden that the MU had helped over half a million people around the world, supporting them through prayer and with practical support. Merrill Knight

Over the years there have been many Christians persecuted for their faith in Owo and Doko, Nigeria so we in the Mothers’ Union need to hold and support them in our prayers. Research by Joan
