I hope you and your family are all well.
Signs of spring have appeared this week in the Churchyard as the photo shows.
Life appears to be settling down to a new rhythm. We are getting used to and adapting to this latest lockdown. I know that a number of you have already had the first vaccination and some their second. It seems to me that it is our Christian duty to have the vaccine if you are able. The ‘neighbour’ principle, which is fundamental to Jesus’ teaching, extends to our duty to protect everyone from harm whenever it is possible and despite our own feelings. If there is anything we have learnt over the last 9 months, it is that loving our neighbour pervades our whole life and is without exception.
Parish life is beginning to return to the pattern we had before Christmas. Zoom choir practice began again on Thursday.
The Bible Study group on Wednesdays at 7.30pm (Zoom Meeting ID: 873 0988 5456 Password: 011017) is having great fun looking at the Old Testament book of Esther – not a book I know particularly well!
The Thursday Zoom Coffee morning at 11.00am is certainly helping to blow away the January blues (Zoom Meeting ID: 830 5926 6740 Password: 791441). Do please join us whenever you can. Both are so arranged so that it doesn’t matter if you can’t come every time.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything of concern or whether you have any fresh ideas as to what we could do. In the meantime tomorrow’s service is attached. It will be led by James.
With God’s blessing,
