​World Toilet day

World Toilet Day, a UN Day of Observance, is held each year on 19 November 

More people in the world have a mobile phone (6 billion) than have access to a toilet (4.5 billion). One initiative linked with World Toilet Day is Toilet Twinning, begun by CORD (Christian Outreach for Relief & Development) and now run by Tearfund. This promotes projects for improving sanitation in some of the poorest communities in the world, raising funds and awareness through twinning toilets. For £60, a home, church or school can be linked to somewhere where facilities are very different. The funds raised help Tearfund deliver water and sanitation projects in more than 25 countries. Those twinned receive a certificate and photo, with coordinates of the toilet twinned.

For more information see www.toilettwinning.org

Pray for the Toilet Twinning initiative and how your church might get involved to help change the lives of those at risk from poor sanitation, for the work of CORD and Tearfund and for all who live daily without clean water or suitable sanitation.

​Remembrance Sunday

Today is Remembrance Sunday, when
we remember all those who fought,
and fell, for our country and to protect
our freedom, not just in the First and
Second World Wars but in all conflicts
since. We remember the sacrifices that
they made so that we could live the
lives that we live today. 

In today’s world we often see hatred rather than love for one another. There is hatred
in every terrorist bombing. There is hatred in every nuclear threat. As Christians, we
should be a light in this darkness, showing love to those around us and making known
the everlasting hope that is found in Jesus Christ. As Christians we can make changes
and actively pray for peace. 

Pray for all suffering and conflict going on in the world right now, that those affected
may know God’s love and peace during these horrific times, particularly those who
have lost loved ones. Pray for a quick resolution to the many conflicts raging across the
globe, that peace may be swift and certain.
