in Uganda are semi-illiterate, and the country faces problems such as poverty, disease
and domestic violence. Many Mothers’ Union members are considered community
role models for their work in education and counselling. On Ash Wednesday may we
focus on God’s desire for us to put aside our selfish ways and play our part in living
out the values of God’s kingdom on earth. “Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all
kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying
for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6.18) We pray for our members in Uganda, that
their vision to affect society for good would be fulfilled. May they be enabled to
reach their full potential in all that God has given them.

2 Kings 2:1-12
Now when the LORD was about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind,
Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal. Elijah said to Elisha, "Stay here;
for the LORD has sent me as far as Bethel." But Elisha said, "As the LORD lives,
and as you yourself live, I will not leave you." So they went down to Bethel. The
company of prophets who were in Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him,
"Do you know that today the LORD will take your master away from you?" And
he said, "Yes, I know; keep silent."
Elijah said to him, "Elisha, stay here; for the LORD has sent me to Jericho." But
he said, "As the LORD lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you." So
they came to Jericho. The company of prophets who were at Jericho drew near to
Elisha, and said to him, "Do you know that today the LORD will take your
master away from you?" And he answered, "Yes, I know; be silent."
Then Elijah said to him, "Stay here; for the LORD has sent me to the Jordan."
But he said, "As the LORD lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you."
So the two of them went on. Fifty men of the company of prophets also went, and
stood at some distance from them, as they both were standing by the Jordan. Then
Elijah took his mantle and rolled it up, and struck the water; the water was parted
to the one side and to the other, until the two of them crossed on dry ground.
When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, "Tell me what I may do for you,
before I am taken from you." Elisha said, "Please let me inherit a double share of
your spirit." He responded, "You have asked a hard thing; yet, if you see me as I
am being taken from you, it will be granted you; if not, it will not." As they
continued walking and talking, a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated the
two of them, and Elijah ascended in a whirlwind into heaven. Elisha kept
watching and crying out, "Father, father! The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!"
But when he could no longer see him, he grasped his own clothes and tore them
in two pieces.
Psalm 50:1-6
The LORD, the God of gods, has spoken; *
he has called the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Out of Zion, perfect in its beauty, *
God reveals himself in glory.
Our God will come and will not keep silence; *
before him there is a consuming flame,
and round about him a raging storm.
He calls the heavens and the earth from above *
to witness the judgment of his people.
"Gather before me my loyal followers, *
those who have made a covenant with me
and sealed it with sacrifice."
Let the heavens declare the rightness of his cause; *
for God himself is judge.
2 Corinthians 4:3-6
Even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case
the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from
seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For
we do not proclaim ourselves; we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as
your slaves for Jesus' sake. For it is the God who said, "Let light shine out of
darkness," who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the
glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Mark 9:2-9
Font Tag Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led
them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before
them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could
bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking
with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us
make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." He did not
know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and
from the cloud there came a voice, "This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!"
Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but
only Jesus. As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no
one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
