Five Smooth Stones
is a prayer initiative by the Moderator-Designate Rev Richard Dawson for the up coming General Assembly on 15 -19 November:
“The key to understanding Assembly is realising that above all else it is a spiritual event. Assembly was, at its heart, always meant to be an exercise in discerning the will of God and this is always something that involves the Holy Spirit and prayer. I believe we have allowed ourselves to stray somewhat from this perception of this gathering and that we need now to return to prayer in order to see GA deliver the kind of results we need from such a big effort.
So I call now the whole Church to gather together as Presbyteries and parishes
and, indeed, as individuals, to pray for this event."
To help with this a resource will be made available called '5 Smooth Stones of Prayer'
which will provide some direction for prayer. Look for prayer cards at reception.
