Thought for Tuesday 18th May

We would really love to include PICTURES from you  in our You Tube Sunday service. Please send them as soon as possible to Martin Lynas.  [email protected]

TECHNO help wanted. To give our hard working You Tube service producer, Martin Lynas, a break, is there anyone who could take a turn on a rota to put together and upload the Sunday service video from the short video clips the ministry team and Natasha send in each week?  If so, please reply to Martin Lynas, [email protected]  who can fill in the detail of what this is.

Tuesday 18th May 


St Teresa allegedly raged at God: ‘If this is how you treat your friends no wonder you have so few!’

Loving God

Help us to understand this mystery

of being privileged.

Privileged, not to have,

but to give.

Privileged, not in that we are protected

against sorrow and pain

but that we are promised

that you will be with us

and give us strength to face them when they come.

Privileged in that we are set free to love

because we know ourselves securely held in love.

Privileged to share in the work of the kingdom

and be numbered among God’s people,

the communion of saints.

Help us to understand this mystery

and to rejoice that we too

are called to be privileged people.’

(Edmund Banyard)

with love and prayers
