Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you” Luke 10.8&9
Monday just gone was St Luke’s day. ‘The beloved physician’ was an evangelist, gospel writer, diarist, and companion of Paul. As Luke records Jesus’ words as he sent out the disciples on mission, it was an holistic approach. Wholeness of body, mind and spirit are marks of the Kingdom. We often separate those things now and professionalise them. It is worth reflecting on Jesus’ charge.
Things to pray for
- Give thanks for the Kingdom being close at hand.
- for those working in health and caring services.
- the ongoing negotiations prior to COP26 so that it might achieve positive change.
In-Church worship Sunday at 10am. Holy Communion with CoG’s.
Face coverings please and be especially conscious of how some people will still want to be cautious.
You can also watch by live-stream on the church facebook page.
This week’s readings are: Psalm 126 & Mark 10.46-52
10am on Thursday
Holy Communion in Church
We are going to continue with our current Sunday morning pattern at 10am through to the end of November. We don’t want to be changing constantly. Now that the schools are back the children’s work has restarted also. We will review it again for the later Autumn and adapt as we go.
Being all together in one service means some differences from ‘normal.’ We would love to know what you have liked and found valuable and if there are ways we could adapt. Use the post-its on the noticeboard at the back of church.
As we become more settled on Sunday mornings it will be good to re-establish a refreshment rota. We welcome old and new faces to take a turn. Find a friend and sign up.
As part of their outreach work the Chocolate Box project get through a lot of cake. I have suggested we might be able to help. Would you be willing to supply a traybake on a Sunday? If enough of us sign up it would only be once a quarter or so.
Let Maureen know ([email protected] or 07765 232789) if you want to join either rota.
