Deanery Meeting – 11th October at St Mary the Virgin Church Ketton
Some of the MU Oakham members went to Ketton to join other Deanery members in a quiet morning.
The day started with refreshments and an informal chat with other members. This was followed by a hymn: Be still, for the presence of the Lord. Psalm 46 was also touched upon:
Be still then and know that I am God.
This was followed by a talk given by the Churchwarden Mr George Martin, a local farmer, who related some stories of his journey to Christianity.
Next there was a time to be silent, to pray, to be quiet, to think and to listen to your own thoughts. A short Billy Graham film then followed which explained how young people were given a fuller meaning in life by their Christian faith.
An enjoyable lunch was served in the Church Hall, and Ketton members were thanked for their hospitality.
Our next monthly meeting is Thursday 9th November, commencing at 2:15 in All Saints Oakham Church Hall. Jill Cannings will speak on Faith in Action in Palestine.
