The Radio Cymru Service that was broadcast on Sunday 11 May 2014 at the start of Christian Aid Week was led by Delyth Wyn Davies, Learning and Development Officer of the Methodist Church. The theme of the service was ‘Jesus, the gate for the sheep’. While telling the parable of the sheepfold, Jesus said, “I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.”
In the service there was the opportunity to explore not only who Jesus is but also who we are as his followers. The lectionary readings for the Sunday were used, being Psalm 23, John 10: 1-10 and Acts 2: 42-47, along with prayers and responses to ther readings from the Christian Aid Week service, Welsh prayers from the ecumenical worship and learning resource ‘Roots’ and the Prayer of God the Saviour from the Black Book of Carmarthen with the response:
We praise God’s ever-increasing mercy – Christ is a strong shepherd, honoured for ever.
