THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK BEGINNING SUNDAY 17th OCTOBER 2021
“The spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions. The nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we become.”
Henry Martyn (1781-1812)
In the Church of England’s Lectionary (common to other Christian churches) we remember this remarkable missionary and translator of the Holy Scriptures for Indian and Persian (Iranian) readers on the anniversary of his death, Tuesday 19th October.
