Almighty God,
whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain,
and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,
may find it none other than the way of life and peace;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
THE BRIDGEBUILDER QUIZ took place yesterday evening at
Loughton Baptist Church. Three teams, including the one from
St George's, tied for first place. Sadly, we were not quite quick
enough in the deciding question so we finished in second place.

3rd SUNDAY
OF LENT
IN TOUCH
March 8th 2015
WE ARE REALLY INTO our Lenten journey now, and we are making our way with
more and more purpose towards the cross. Griff, our placement student, will be
preaching today and he writes....
You know how sometimes, you might ask Where is God leading me with this
piece of scripture? Although, this could just be me! Well, I don't feel that way
with the lectionary (John 2:13-22) this time; hooray!
I have been praying and reading about this piece of scripture and I believe the
sentence to sum up what I feel called to bring out of it is:
Jesus clears the temple Jesus shows his passion for the Father in the
temple, but how do we show our passion for the Father in our lives...
SADLY, BETTY WISE who celebrated her 96th birthday on February 25th and was a
long-standing member of St George's church, died peacefully on Monday 2nd March.
We offer our love and prayers to all Betty's family, but especially for her son David
and her daughter Sue as they grieve. Though Betty had not been able to get to
church much in recent years, she received communion at home and was a dedicated
and faithful servant of Jesus and we pray that she will rest in peace and rise in glory.
Betty's funeral will take place on Monday 23rd March at 2pm in St George's,
followed at 3pm by burial in Wolverton Cemetery.
MOTHERING
NEXT WEEK IS MOTHERI
NG SUNDAY and we will be having special services in
both our churches where we will rejoice for the love of all those who offer a
mothering love. There will be activities for the little ones, mothers' day flowers will
be given, and candles lit in memory of mothers no longer with us.

What part does faith play in practical politics? How does faith influence our stance on
issues? How can Christians best take part in community activity and the political process?
In the run up to the General Election what are the key issues for Christians? In a largely
secular society, is the Christian voice marginalised in politics? How can churches increase
their engagement in society? How do we work for the common good and social justice in
the community?
What are the issues we face as people of faith seeking to serve society through political
action?
On Sunday 22nd March I am taking part in an 8K
fun run around Willen lake to raise money for MK
Food Bank. If you would like to make a donation,
please let me know. My online fundraising page is
