MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER

Dear Friends,

As I have told you before I often don’t give up food for Lent.  Maybe that shows my lack of will-power! I’ve found it more important to use the time of Lent to seek something more and devote my time to more prayer or bible reflection perhaps, or to volunteer in the local foodbank. But whatever I do, at the heart is to make that conscious decision of actively seeking and being aware of God’s presence.

This past year we have given up so much. No matter who you are, everyone has struggled during this pandemic. Some have certainly struggled more than others. I would lie if I said that there haven’t been times when I have questioned where God’s presence is.

Yet, his presence is there.  It is in those working in the NHS, as they battle this disease and hold the hands of those who are dying and those who have the vaccination. It is present in schools, supporting families and children with their education. It is present in the neighbour dropping around food, and medication. It is in the mother hugging her child who is struggling as they miss their friends. It is in the stranger that leaves a painted pebble on the path to bring joy to the one who finds it.

God is always present, offering us hope, comfort, reassurance and love.

This Lent, may you become aware of God’s presence around you and may you be filled with the love and comfort he offers.


With blessings this lent,

Rev. Donna
