NOVEMBER 8 – NOVEMBER 17
What a wonderful service and luncheon last week to celebrate Jean’s 80th birthday. A huge thanks to everyone who contributed to food, setting and cleaning up and the wonderful atmosphere that was abroad. There is something very Jesus like about a party as He was often at them joining in the celebrations of life.
A special thanks to Ray Sharpe and his helpers again who so generously gave time and fed us so well.
Sunday November 10th is shaping up to be a full and comprehensive day in our worship with Jean’s last formal day in the sanctuary, the Arts Festival Prayers, Remembrance Day and Philip Kent making a flying visit. Apologies in advance if this is all a bit confused but with the pressures of time there has been little choice I am afraid.
Following this I will be away for two Sundays so there will be no 8 o’clock on those two Sundays and Morning Prayer and Meditation will be cancelled for the Thursdays I am away.
This Sunday we celebrate the joyous festival of All Saints which allows us to sing some of the best hymns we have in our tradition. Please join us to enjoy this great day.
Blessings and thanks to all.
Readings: Daniel 7.1-3,15-18, Ps 149, Ephesians 1.11-23; Luke 6.20-31
