This year the Baptist Union president is the Rev Rupert Lazar minister of East Barnet Baptist church.He passionately believes in recognising people’s gifts and reminding them who they are in Christ.
His presidential theme ‘Anointed to do good’ is taken from Acts 10:38: ‘… how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.’
Rupert has identified six key aspects of the theme:
- Integral mission
- Spiritual gifts
Over the summer we will be showing one of these short videos (2-3 minutes in length) as part of our Sunday morning service at Dovedale. Starting 30th July with the video ‘Relational’.
The theme ‘Anointed to do good’ will provide a common thread through these Sundays – a focus for our thought, prayer and conversation.
With the holidays you may not be able to be there each week but I encourage you to give the different aspects of the theme some thought each week.
