Tuesday 6 December

In the middle of  Summer, standing on the beach in bare feet the sand burns. One is reduced to hopping from foot to foot, seeking relief, until eventually managing to scrape off the surface layer of sand and uncover cooler damp sand underneath. And there is blessed relief. A wild   dance of agony sinks into relaxation.

In our frantic preparations, in our mad shopping trips, in our keeping up with the neighbours let us focus again on he who comes to bring peace. Let us remind ourselves where our grounding lies.

“Our heart is restless until it finds its rest in you.” St Augustine.

Further details of the quote from St Augustine

 Jesus, the answer to our frantic restlessness, may I find your peace though my prayers and  actions this day. Amen



In the Spirit!

A ‘Burn’s Supper’ and whisky tasting – a gathering ‘in the Spirit’ you may say; or even partaking in sympathy with our friends north of the border. An excuse to be together makes for laughter and all sorts of conversation. Long live the social aspects of our Christian lives. Fun without trying too hard. Thanks to the spirit.
