In a fairy tale there is a contest of strength between a giant and a small tailor. The giant throws a stone so high into the sky that it takes an age for it to fall down again. But the small tailor releases a bird, which does not fall down again. Whatever does not have wings always ends up falling down again. But if it is God who works in us He will give our particular gifts and talents wings. Sermon for Trinity2: stmarymagdalene.church/2021/06/trinity-2-2021-the-kingdom-of-god ... See MoreSee Less

Daily Devotionals

Daily devotionals come from three sources that you can choose from (or use all!), whether travelling to work, sitting and relaxing during a well deserved break, or making one of them a part of your daily 'quiet time' with God.

Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer (or Compline) come from the Church of England's Common Worship which provides prayers and readings for different times during the day.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C.

Morning Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Morning Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Evening Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Evening Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Compline

Please click this link to be taken to today's Night Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship.

The Church year begins in Advent. This church year, 2020-2021, is year B.
