CG Social Gathering

Had our Social Gathering tonight (potluck). Great job to Hongmei for organising and co-ordinating all the dishes. We had a great spread, potato gratin (Suyin), toad-in-a-hole (Jo), otah (Chris), roast chicken (Tim), fried noodles/rice (Hongmei), drinks/dessert/finger foods (Heather). Had a nice, relaxing evening of food and fellowship with one another. Celebrated Dave's (and Nov babies) birthday with a chocolate brownie cake that Jeanie baked. A big hello to Jeanie's colleague, Miao Miao from Myanmar!

From Chris: Five-Finger Prayer Guide

Dear Friends,

I was experiencing that a dry spell during my Prayer Time until I came across this short little prayer guide:
- When you fold your hands, the thumb is nearest you. So begin by praying for those closest to you—your loved ones (Philippians 1:3-5).
- The index finger is the pointer. Pray for those who teach—Bible teachers and preachers, and those who teach children (1 Thessalonians 5:25).
- The next finger is the tallest. It reminds you to pray for those in authority over you—national and local leaders, and your supervisor at work (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
- The fourth finger is usually the weakest. Pray for those who are in trouble or who are suffering (James 5:13-16).
- Then comes your little finger. It reminds you of your smallness in relation to God's greatness. Ask Him to supply your needs (Philippians 4:6,19).
