A couple of times a year we get the opportunity of writing the Christian Viewpoint column for the local newspaper. Below is the editorial for 7th September 2017
Something exciting is happening among the Christian churches of Ludlow! The leaders of the churches have decided to meet once a month to eat a meal together and then to pray! This is not rooted in a feeling that we ought to pray together, rather we WANT to pray together! How has this happened when the leaders have only met infrequently in the past to pray? It is simply a move of the Holy Spirit upon the hearts of the leaders, a prompting, a recognition, a desire to pray and to work even more closely together.
As you trace every Christian revival that has taken place right across the globe throughout the centuries, each one has always begun with a small group of people choosing to set time aside – and pray together. Other meetings become less important, business meetings have to wait – the urgency prior to any God given revival is for Christians, regardless of denominational label, to join together – in prayer. This is now happening in Ludlow, among its church leaders. Great things await all those who lay aside denominational differences and choose to work together – as one.
