Please include this Collect for Provincial Standing Committee, which meets at the end of September, in your prayers:
You have entrusted to your Church
a share in the mission of your Son in the world:
help each and every member of this Church
to discern their calling to a particular ministry,
to seek the training that they require, and
to accept the vocation to which you direct them;
through Jesus Christ our Lord
and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

“Good news! Christ is risen indeed!” commented Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, responding from the United States, where he has been attending the General Convention the The Episcopal Church. “Wow,” he added, “what a journey!”
