Weekly news for 13.12.20

Dear Friends

Here is the latest news, please note the Christmas details. Do please also check in with the facebook page www.facebook.com/ccpitsmoor/   and website  www.pitsmoor.church/  during the week as things do change!

A little word

And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we abound in love for you.                                                                                                                     1 Thessalonians 3.12

St Paul wishes the best for his friends as he writes to them. So often he writes words like those above. He wants us to truly experience the life-changing power of following Jesus. Everything points to love. God’s love for us, our love for one another. It seems so simple! I echo Paul’s prayer for each of you; may you love and know that you are loved.
