DAY 4 – Meditation: January 21st from Andy

John 15: 15 “I do not call you servants any longer … but I have called you friends” To be called a friend of God is to be like Abraham (2 Chronicles 20:7) or Moses (Exodus 33:11) who were called friends of God.   The main image of our relationship with God in the Old Testament was as […]

DAY 3 – Testimony: John Hughes (Protestant) – USA

When I was eight years old we lived in a rural French village. The public school we went to still had (Catholic) religion class, and I distinctly remember in the first class it was announced that a few of us (myself included) would be going to the computer room during the time. In some cases […]

DAY 3 – Meditation: January 20th from Br. Joe

John 15: 12 “Love one another as I have loved you” One day at Rutgers University in New Jersey, Brian, a chaplain to the Chi Alpha student outreach of the Assemblies of God Church asked me, “Can you give a talk to our students on the baptism in the Holy Spirit?” Was I ever surprised! […]

DAY 2 – Meditation: January 19th from Br. Joe

John 15: 4 – “Abide in me as I abide in you” It is an undisputed botanical fact that a branch cut off from the stem or vine of a plant dies. It cannot bear fruit. This is the point which Jesus makes in John 15 when he states, “I am the vine…apart from me […]

DAY 1 – Testimony: Florence Irvine (Catholic) – Northern Ireland

The most important aspect for me of living as a member of an ecumenical community in the Sword of the Spirit, is the daily praying and sharing of my faith and life with brothers and sisters from different Christian denominations, now for almost 40 years.  I grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in the 1960s/70s, […]

DAY 1 – Meditation: January 18th from Br. Joe

John 15: 16a “You did not choose me I chose you.” The idea of ‘chosen-ness’ to many people can smack of elitism.  God’s choices, however, are not based on the superior qualities of any person or group.  He chooses people to be something and to do something. He chose Israel to be a light to the nations and fulfill his […]
