St Mungo: ecumenical intercessions 2009

Intercessions written by Rev Dr Laurence Whitley for the ecumenical service for St Mungo’s Day in Glasgow Cathedral on Sunday 11th January 2009. The Intercessions were read by Rev Derek Bibb of the Methodist Church, Sr Maire Gallagher of the Roman Catholic Church, Major Stephen Huyton of the Salvation Army, and Mrs Betty MacDonald of Culross Abbey Parish Church Heavenly Father, we remember how from small things great things can grow. We bow before you in gratitude as we recall how from small beginnings here a great city grew. A city from whose bounds many have travelled to the farthest corners of your world. Hear us as we pray now for Glasgow’s sons and daughters scattered across many lands and oceans. May they know that on this day and in this place, their ancestral home remembers them in blessing.
