This week we hear from John Haines, in a written account attached.

John attends Divonne church, both the French Protestant and La Côte Anglican services, so provides a valuable link between the two churches. In his fascinating account, we find out what John does, for even in 'retirement' he is as busy as ever and would normally be travelling a good part of the time. So how has Covid-19 affected him? Living on his own and cut off from his friends, family and his passion for opera and music festivals, he finds time to reflect, appreciate the online services and get to know his neighbours better. He shares his serious concern for the longer-term consequences of the virus and encourages us, as Christians, to be actively involved and, above all, to pray.
