Thought for the Week

Sunday, 29 August 2021

We invite you to Pray through the Week with Dreghorn and Springside Parish Church.

Pray Through The Week


This is the official magazine of the Church of Scotland.  This weekend marks 140 years of publication.  I have always found it so informative and keeps me up to date on so many Church subjects.  It also introduces me to the wider work of the Church.  Personally I have found the more I learn, the more I want to learn.  It is published every month and I recommend you give it a try.

Global events in recent weeks seem to be going from bad to worse and I am left despairing - there seems so little I am able to do.  The one thing I can do is pray.  I know God always listens and I put my trust in His hands.  God always keeps His promises (1 Corinthians 1:9).

It is possible an Afghanistan refuge(s) may arrive locally in the near future and let us resolve to extend the Christian hand of friendship in any way we can.  We cannot begin to imagine what life must be like at present in that country.  Jesus told us to love our neighbour as ourself.

Yes, we have many blessings to be so grateful for and the next time you moan, give thanks for the freedom and peace we enjoy.


The Team is having a break for the next few weeks, but we are interested in finding out how many people log into 'Pray Through The Week' and your thoughts about it.  If you have any feedback, please drop us an email at, or give us a call on 01294 285 910.
