HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS to Don Cunningham (Dec 27).
O God, our times are in your hand:
Look with favour, we pray, on your servant, Don, as he begins another year.
Grant that he may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen his trust in your goodness
all the days of his life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

WE REMEMBER the late Hilda Lucas who died last year at age 96 on Dec 29.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.  [Deut. 33.27]

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.

And lead us not into temptation,

For thine is the kingdom,

for ever and ever.  Amen.
