Thought for the Week from MU - Sunday 20th August                                      Diversity and Inclusion – NEW ZEALAND                                                     In 2016 members marked their 130th anniversary and gathered for a provincial conference where Rev Liz Richards, MU member and chaplain at a Women’s Corrections Facility spoke about women who are pregnant when sentenced and whose babies remain with them after birth. Organisations including MU support them with undergarments, toiletry packs, off-cuts of fabrics for quilt-making, knitting needles and wool. “In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:26, 28) We give thanks for the work with young people carried out by our members in New Zealand and pray that God will provide them with all they need as they serve this generation
