This year’s theme: Fearfully and wonderfully made
Fearfully and wonderfully made
The theme for Ability Sunday this year, taken from Psalm 139, is “fearfully and wonderfully made”.
Why Psalm 139?
This year’s theme gives us the opportunity to explore how each and every one of us, both disabled and non-disabled, is fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving God who knew us in our mother’s womb and formed the way we think and feel. It allows us time to reflect on and celebrate everyone’s unique gifts as wonderfully made by God and how they can enrich the church community.
Written for Ability Sunday and included in the unique pack, Bishop Steven Croft offers reflections on what it means to be fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving God.
This year’s theme
The Bible speaks powerfully of God’s love for us. From the beautiful words of psalm 139 which highlight God’s intimate knowledge and care for every individual He created; to the examples of Jesus’ life and his commandment for us to “love one another”.
Whatever our circumstances or abilities, everyone is precious to God and we are all unique. We all have our own talents, strengths, skills, personalities – we all have unique gifts, and part of the beauty of a gift lies in sharing it with others.
For Ability Sunday 2019 are celebrating people’s unique gifts as we believe that churches and communities are richer when everyone is involved.
It is our hope that every member of your church family (whatever their age or ability) can take part in Ability Sunday this year, finding opportunities to use their own gifts, to share them in helping others and to encourage others to discover and use their own unique gifts.
Will you join us for this Ability Sunday? Knowing that together, we can build a strong and united church family.Register for a pack here →
