Methodist resources from 2020
Due to Covid restrictions, many churches didn't receive the 2020 resources. These can be downloaded below, or hard copies can be ordered through Methodist Publishing. Please do not make unnecessary journeys to distribute resources – please continue to stay safe during this coronavirus crisis and follow Government guidelines.
Jesus loves all - a prayer journal
Journey through the eleven days of Thy Kingdom Come using the prayer journal Jesus loves all, written by Methodist Youth President, Thelma Commey.
- Each day there is a passage from the Bible, a short reflection, a prayer, and a suggestion for action. There is also space each day for your own notes.
- Throughout the journal there are images to help you meditate on each daily theme. Let these inspire you as you read through each section for that day; and add your own notes.
- Author, Thelma Commey says, “It is my prayer that as we explore Scripture and reflect on the unconditional love of Jesus, you will experience it for yourself. Jesus loves you”.
A free copy of the journal went inside the connexion magazine, issue 18, ‘Letting Go’.
