World Day of Prayer.....
The Bo’ness Prayer and Worship service, on the theme “Receive Children, 
Receive Me”, was celebrated in Carriden Church on Friday 4th March - 
unfortunately too late for details to be included in last week’s 
Newsletter.
 
Fellowship of the Least Coin 
The idea for the Fellowship of the Least Coin emerged as a vision from God
 to Mrs. Shanti Solomon from India. In September 1956, Mrs Solomon was a 
member of the Pacific Mission Team of seven women from different nations,
 who travelled through Asian countries after World War II. The tour was 
organized by Dr. Margaret Shannon of the National Office of Presbyterian 
Women in the U.S.A. When she was refused a visa to Korea, Shanti Solomon 
went to the Philippines to await the return of her colleagues. Whilst 
there, she reflected on the experiences of their travel throughout 
war-torn Asia and the national and economic barriers that kept women 
apart.  When the team returned, she suggested that prayer could transcend
every national boundary. She challenged the Christian women of Asia and 
the Presbyterian Church of the U.S. to launch a project of Christian 
prayer and positive action, in which every woman could participate, no 
matter what her economic status. Every time a woman prayed, she was to 
set aside the "least coin" of her currency. (This was to encourage these 
women to demonstrate their unity, in Christian faith, regardless of their
 country or economic circumstances). Everyone accepted this as a way to 
express their solidarity with suffering humanity and with women of 
every nation.
 
                                                                           
We are invited to participate and contribute with the Christian women of 
every continent, be it a penny or a pound! A collection plate is placed 
in the Hall today, and Maria will take the contents to Carriden church 
after Mass on Sunday morning ----- please be generous!
