COLLECT 

Almighty God, you show to those who are in error the light of your truth, that they may return to the way of righteousness: grant to all those who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s religion, that they may reject those things that are contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;  through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. 
Amen.

EPACTS (EAST PERTHSHIRE ACTION OF CHURCHES TOGETHER IN SCOTLAND)
Below is a list of events organised by EPACTS which may or may not happen!

5th March                     WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

                                         In the past, Alyth, Blairgowrie and Coupar Angus have held services

                                         separately.  The present position is:
                                         in Alyth it was the turn of St. Luan’s to hold the services.  There is a plan to

                                         hold it on some other date later.

                                         In Blairgowrie it was St. Catharine’s’s turn.   The service is cancelled but we

                                         have copies of the order of service if anyone would like one.   We believe

                                         there is to be a Youtube version.   We also could try holding it on a later date.  

                                         Coupar Angus has not held a service recently.   We can find help at                                                                     www.wwdp.org.uk – free resources download  or

EMBRACE WHO GOD IS

“In you, Lord my God, I put my trust”   (Psalm 25:1)

Yahweh, the great ‘I am’ 

Created by the one who made the heavens and the earth,                          I am
Inspired by the one who breathed life into all living things,                          I am
Rescued by the one who gave Noah the blueprint for the ark                     I am

Confident in the one who kept the promise to Abraham                              I am
Appointed by the one who gave Joseph purpose                                           I am
Freed by the one who broke the chains of injustice in Egypt                        I am
Enabled by the one who makes it possible to defeat giants with a sling,   I am
Restored by the one who brought Israel back from exile                              I am
Forgiven by the one who cries out forgiveness from the cross,                   I am

Awakened by the one who awakens the dead,                                               I am
Renewed by the one who will renew all things,                                              I am
Made in the image of the one called, ‘I am who I am’,                                   I am

Amen
