Jim is preaching the Word this Sunday.  

His text is Luke 23:32-43:



Three Criminals

 
---------------------
 
Dear friends at Swedesford Road,
I was so encouraged to see the great turnout at the Easter sunrise service last week! You have no idea how much that helps a preacher. Thank you!
We are going to try to hold at least one other service like that this summer. Pray for the National Park to approve our application of a permit for a "Service of Thanksgiving for the Founding of the United States" on July 3. In good weather, and a little later in the morning, this could be a great evangelistic opportunity.


This week we will again come to the communion table to receive the elements of the Lord's Supper. Elder Tim Green and I will serve you the elements from the table. 
I was encouraged to hear feedback from many of you that coming to the table was a good change after our communion method of almost a year that was mostly driven by caution about the corona virus. We are thankful that the Lord gave us remarkable health as a congregation during an uncertain time. 
With a new pulpit and communion table in place, it is also more apparent as soon as you enter the chapel that music, the preaching of the Word, and the Lord's Supper are at the heart of our worship together. This makes prominent the normal means of grace through which God shepherds his people. 
Let's look forward to coming together again this week in worship and to receive the grace Jesus pours out from his mediatorial reign in glory!
Your servant in Christ's cause,
Steve

Let's Pray For Bulgaria,

Neighbors of Ukraine
President of Bulgaria,

------------- 
Rumen Radev
  ---------------

The Eastern European nation of Bulgaria’s modern identity is reminiscent of past glories lost. Formed in the 7th century AD, Bulgaria has experienced long periods of foreign domination. The nation was subjugated for five hundred years under Ottoman rule, and in 1946 it fell under communist rule as a soviet satellite state until a new democracy was established in 1989. The term “Bulgarian” most likely comes from the Turkic verb which means “to mix,” and describes the ancestral mixing of the Bulgar and Slavic peoples to form the modern Bulgarian people group. Home to many other ethnic groups such as Macedonian, Millet, Turkic, and Roma, Bulgaria is known for having strained inter-ethnic relations.

 

Despite rapid industrialization under communist rule, Bulgaria experienced great economic hardships after the fall of the socialist government. Economic reforms in 1997 helped to stabilize the economy, but high unemployment and mass emigration have persisted. With well-managed fiscal planning and low corporate taxes, Bulgaria should appear inviting to foreign investment, yet corruption, a weak judiciary, and organized crime hinder economic growth. The Bulgarian society is broken: high poverty, divorce, abortion (which outnumbers live births), emigration of youth, and the discrimination of minorities continue.

 

After the fall of the socialist government, the atheist population declined, and the Christian population grew. Today the great majority of Bulgarians belong to the Orthodox Church. Yet most do not practice their faith, and for many it is only a sign of identity. Both Islam and Christianity in Bulgaria have incorporated some pagan beliefs and traditions, and both are subject to nominalism. In the 1990s a large influx of foreign funding created dependency among churches and a general perception that evangelicals “buy” converts. The many ethnic minorities are in need of Christian ministry and discipleship. Cross-cultural missions are also increasing, with Bulgarians serving throughout Europe and Asia, with an increase in short-term missions

• Pray for generations-long racism to be healed through believers who demonstrate the love of Christ.

 

• Pray for corrupt leaders to be replaced with wise, visionary people of principle.

 

• Pray for unity among the Church and mission organizations seeking to evangelize this nation.


Together let's watch and pray,
The Prayercast Team
