THIS WEEK AT AIC
View this email in your browser
Dear <<First Name>>, 

The political news across the world absorbs our attention. It's not just in the UK and US, but Hong Kong, Haiti, Ukraine and more.  All of this uncertainty may also leave us feeling overwhelmed or powerless. How can our faith see us through? Where is God in the midst of it all?

Enter Elijah, who also lived through turbulent times, and showed where to find God when the world seems to be too much. Over the coming weeks, we'll be studying Elijah's stories. These aren't about politics or policies or programs. They are about keeping our balance and perspective as people of faith when the world feels like it's spinning a little bit too fast. I am hopeful they will anchor all of us in prayer and faith as we witness the fast-moving events all around us.

This week, we start with food. It's World Communion Sunday, so we will gather at Christ's table, and hope you will help us by bringing some bread representing your own country of origin. In the scripture, Elijah's first appearance involves food as well--he is fed by God's provision from ravens and by a widow sharing her last morsel with him. Both remind us to stay generous and continue to gather at tables with others, because there God will show us provision and peace.

If you could use that grounding and reminder, join us on Sunday.


Faithfully,

Pastor Jennifer

West End Refugees Welcome
 
AIC is partnering with Bloomsbury Baptist Church and the Quakers to sponsor a refugee family under the Home Office Community Sponsorship Scheme. Plans are moving quickly, and we anticipate welcoming this family before Christmas. Jonathan Miller is leading the effort, and will offer a detailed update next Sunday during worship about how you can be involved. You can e-mail him (jonathan@amchurch.co.uk) for more information.
Stuart Tower Tour
 
In addition to the manse, the church also owns a flat in Maida Vale, where Jonathan Miller currently resides. After a water leak, the Council has approved a significant overhaul of the flat. If you’ve never visited, Jonathan invites everyone to a “before” gathering on Sunday, October 13 after worship to see its current state—to be followed by an “after” gathering to show the completed works in the new year.
