Those among you with good memories may remember that a while ago the MP for Bracknell, Dr Phillip Lee, was going to come and speak at TMTL, our group for the retired, but unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute.
Well Phillip has now given us a new date, and will be speaking on Thursday 26th September at the K2 building on our Bracknell site. Although this a TMTL meeting they would like to invite everyone to come. If you're around I'd really encourage you to be there. I've got a lot of time for Phillip, and think he speaks a lot of sense on a range of issues, from the NHS to Syria, as well as being very positive about what we do as a church community. However, that's only my personal opinion and I'd encourage you to come along and hear him for yourself.
Phillip is going to talking about his work as an MP and all the things that go on during a working week, plus he will speak a little bit about his own background. Phillip will start speaking at 2pm, but if you could aim to get there for 1.45pm that would give you time to get a drink and find a seat. After Phillip has spoken there will be time to ask him questions - the meeting will finish at 3pm.
Even if you can't make it let's be praying for Phillip, and our other elected representatives. As Paul writes to Timothy:
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4 NIV)
