Experiencing desert conditions, searing heat, some of the world’s worst maternal and child mortality figures, and wracked by political division and grinding poverty, Chad is not an easy mission placement. In spite of this, a small team of mission workers oversee the work of Guinebor II Hospital (G2), which continues to provide both life-giving witness to its Islamic community and life-saving medical care to the people of Chad. Pray for BMS mission workers Malc and Sue White. Sue is a nurse mentor and Malc works as the hospital’s Chief Operating Officer. The YBA Prayer Calendar asks prayers for Darnall Road Baptist Church, Sheffield South Yorkshire and Dayspring Church, Garforth Leeds. The Ark (Reported in The Baptist Times A retelling of the biblical story of Noah will air in a primetime BBC slot this Easter. The Ark, a one-off special written by Tony Jordan (Hustle, The Nativity) will air on BBC1 at 8.30 pm on Monday 30th March. Written and produced over a period of three years, The Ark is Jordan’s unique insight into the story of Noah and his family, a story that is found in Jewish, Christian and Muslim scriptures. Thoughts on Holy Week As we go forward into Holy Week we remember Jesus upturning the tables of the money lenders in the temple. A prayer from Rev Phil Jump, Regional Minister Team Leader of the North Western Baptist Association Jesus Christ, ruler of all things, You invite us to pray for your Kingdom's coming; Your heavenly will to be done here on earth. Forgive us if we seek your presence Only for our own comfort and ease; Refusing to be disturbed By the challenge of your Gospel. Overturn the tables of our self-interest; Scatter to the floor the wares of empty religion. Release us from them and grant us courage to follow you, Through the realities of our own world, On that precarious road which leads to Calvary. AMEN Its stars include David Threlfall (Shameless, Master and Commander) as Noah and Joanne Whalley (Wolf Hall, Scandal) as his wife. This is your notice sheet - all articles are welcomed. Please submit them by Thursday to Adam Momčilović [email protected] Monday Mark 15:1-15 Do you want Jesus or Barabbas? Tuesday Mark 15:16-32 Jesus mocked and then crucified Wednesday Mark 15:33-47 Jesus died and was buried Maundy Thursday Mark 16:1-20 The Resurrection and longer ending of Mark’s Gospel Good Friday Luke 23:26-43 The Crucifixion and the two criminals Saturday Luke 23:44-56 When BBC1 screened Tony Jordan’s drama Nativity in 2010 it was watched by over five million viewers and garnered some of the best feedback the BBC has ever received for a popular drama. Like Nativity, this film focuses on the human aspects of the narrative. It’s a powerful, moving film that not only retells the story for a new generation, but also raises contemporary questions of family loyalty, self-doubt, and what it means to live as a person of faith in a world that doesn’t believe.
