Exodus – chapter 3: Moses at the Burning Bush

Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian; he led his flock beyond the wilderness, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; he looked, and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed. Then Moses said, ‘I must turn aside and look at this great sight, and see why the bush is not burned up.’ When the Lord saw that he had turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ Then he said, ‘Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.’ He said further, ‘I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.

Advent is fast approaching, and as our preparations to celebrate the birth of Jesus will be quite different this year, we thought it would be good for as many of us as possible at St Peter’s to join in with a daily devotional called ‘Journey to the heart of Christmas’. It is a 28-day devotional that will take us through from 1st-28th December. This devotional can be done as an individual, with members of your family or with a friend over the telephone or video call.

The devotional will be available as a booklet and will also be available to listen to on the church website. If you would like a free copy of the booklet or are aware of someone who may like one and isn’t on the internet, please telephone the parish office (0151 428 6810) and leave a message*, giving your name and address, or email Julia Pratt ([email protected]) noting “Devotional” in the email subject line, and again giving your name and address.  Please do this by Friday 13th November so that we can order your copy.  Further details regarding the collection or distribution of the booklets will be given before the end of November.

* please allow your call to ring through to our answer machine, it does take a little while!
