ORIGIN OF "THE
BURNING BUSH" NAME
Exodus 3:1-6 - Meanwhile Moses was
tending the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of
Midian. Leading the flock across the desert, he came to Horeb,
the mountain of God. There an angel of the LORD appeared to him
in fire flaming out of a bush. As he looked on, he was surprised
to see that the bush, though on fire, was not consumed. So Moses
decided, "I must go over to look at this remarkable sight, and
see why the bush is not burned." When the LORD saw him coming
over to look at it more closely, God called out to him from the
bush, "Moses! Moses!" He answered, "Here I am." God said, "Come
no nearer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place
where you stand is holy ground. I am the God of your father," he
continued, "the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of
Burning Bush is the place to encounter the Living God. It is
also where God calls Moses to service to lead the
Israelites out of Egypt. Like Moses, we hear the call to
service at St Anne's Church to bring the renewal of the Holy
Spirit to the parish through The Burning Bush Charismatic Prayer Group.

"The Burning Bush is not consumed
by fire and shine forth for the glory of God, always guided
by the Holy Spirit"
||At every Prayer Meeting we worship, God is present in our
midst, ever glorious in the praise of His people. Therefore as
the burning bush is on holy ground in the presence of God, the
ground where we stand on and worship too is HOLY!
||We endeavor to burn like the burning bush, on fire
but not consumed. To be on fire for the Lord, empowered by the
Holy Spirit and in wisdom and discernment, exercise our charisms for His glory!
God who makes every impossible situation a possibility at the burning bush.
When the mission seems difficult, God empowers and equip. Like Moses, we envisioned the The Burning Bush to be the place where many
people will find the Lord of possibilities.
