Two diocesan gathering over Zoom to introduce and explore Thy Kingdom Come 2022 were offered over two sessions on Thursday, 19th May 2022.
Dean Reuben spoke with the Rev Jean Kerr from the Thy Kingdom Come Global planning team who has worked on the materials and project since its first days. In this interview, Jean and Reuben set the scene for invitation of the Thy Kingdom Come season this year. Exploring the video and printed resources that are freely available to help facilitate our engagement in a vast array of prayer activities for Christians of all traditions, to draw on as they engage in this particular season of prayer with people and communities from over 170 countries around the world.
Initially, an Anglican initiative, Thy Kingdom Come has grown into a global prayer initiative to help facilitate churches engaging with prayer in their unique setting and context. Materials for all ages are offered freely: including daily video talks from the Feast of the Ascension through to Pentecost. Resources for developing worship to address the festival days of Ascensiontide, those that mark the final days of Eastertide, help Lay Readers and Clergy in the task of ‘keeping the last days of the 50, 50 of unremitting joy’ which closes Eastertide.
Below are recordings from both Zoom sessions. Find out what is available for us to utilise in our churches and communities this year.
