Teach us, O God, to trust your providence, ordered and sure;
to accept your wisdom, unerring and true; and to rejoice in
your love unbounded and eternal; through Christ our Lord.

Charles Simeon (1759-1836)

Holy God who changes not, help us in times of change.
May we rejoice in what has gone before,
but never live in the past.
May we live in the present
as we serve the needy world of today.
May we have a vision for the future,
but never put off until tomorrow what is needed
Holy God, help us to bring into being
your Church of the future. Amen.

John Howard, former Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury District
