THE ORGAN – Following a thorough cleaning and restoration the re-instatement of the organ in its case is progressing rapidly.  Currently the pedal board, bellows and action have been installed as have the keyboards for the Great and Swell organ. The pipes for the Great organ are next to be installed. If all progresses well we will have half of the organ for Easter.

 

BOOK FAIR

BOOK FAIR 17TH & 18TH FEBRUARY

The Fair runs from 10am to 4pm Saturday and 12 noon to 3pm Sunday

 

 

Dear Friends,

Science has often made the boast that it leads religion and faith in many things. Maybe this is often true. But I have been reading a book of late that exposes the latest scientific discoveries in relation to diet for humans. The discovery is quite amazing and begins with a study of yeast and mice where it has been established that yeast cells and mice that are regularly deprived of food for a certain amount of time each week live longer than those that are fed every day of every week. Scientists therefore in some parts of the world are recommending a diet that includes a period of each week where calorie intake is either very limited or where abstinence from food completely for a day is found to be beneficial. Religious faith of all colours has been recommending fasting of some sort for centuries and it would appear that this urging towards discipline is now actually beneficial for physical health as well. Eureka! Faith has actually been leading science here. In Lent we are encouraged to ‘fast’. I don’t recommend you have entire days without food, please speak to your Doctor before you embark on anything this drastic, but perhaps take the time in Lent to reconsider just how well we are fed and make the adjustment accordingly. It will do your mind, body and spirit good. The research with yeast cells shows quite dramatically that feeding them sugar sparks a burst of life but then the sugar fed cells die quite a long time before the cells not fed with sugar. So miracle of miracles the Vicar was correct when he suggested giving up chocolate and sweets for Lent was a good idea. Good Luck.
