Mary, Mother of God
In the narrative of the Annunciation we see how the Virgin Mary welcomes God’s mercy, which brings her out of herself and leads her toward new paths. It shows to us the importance of making ourselves available, so that our hearts and our whole being are ready to welcome God when he enters into our lives. When we see how this astonishing encounter be-tween Mary and the Archangel Gabriel unfolds, we understand better what prayer is. Perhaps the most beautiful thing is to see how the Holy Virgin uses the same words that God just addressed to her through the Angel. When we hear her exclaim “Be-hold the handmaid of the Lord. Let everything be done for me according to your word” How wonderful is God’s mercy at work in our lives!
Community Passion Play
Deeping Churches To-gether will be putting on a Passion Play on Holy Saturday, April 15. A play reading and audition for actors will take place on Sun-day, January 29th at 2pm at the Deeping Methodist church. If you are inter-ested (in acting, backstage, publicity etc) please come along to the meeting. Please tell anyone you think may be interested, whether or not they attend church, as it is a community Passion Play and the aim is to disseminate the story of Jesus as widely as we can among the local community. There are 9 main characters in the play and a number of others with a few lines to learn. Please see the notice boards for further information.
