Prayer

Blessed are you Lord our God,

for you come to us and seek to make your home in us.

As we study now,

let our eyes and our ears be open to you

let our hearts find their rest and their joy in you

Blessed are you, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

Amen.

Listen to the hymn in the video below and think about the words in terms of pastoral care.  Then download Erickson's Stages of Development from the Resources Section below.  We shall begin by reflecting on Psalm 71 and I have included a sung version for those who like to listen to Psalms.

Videos of the sessions will appear here after the study day

Reflect

What has struck you most from today?  What might you like to explore further? How might it affect your practice and ministry to others?

Prayer

Blessed are you, Lord our God, all things come from you:

from you come our life, this world and all that we have and are.

Help us to love one another as you have loved us.

Blessed are you, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer. 

Amen
