MESSAGE FROM THE MINISTER

Hello Friends,

As another September begins the children are waved back to school and the routine of the week resumes. I wonder if you already have a long to do list; are you even planning for Christmas?!

In the Methodist Church we do our planning somewhat ridiculously early. In late July I was sat in my study wondering how I am to fit 5 carol services, umpteen Christmas get togethers, Advent reflections, 4 nativity services and the odd orange (Christingle) into a 4 week period in December. I think I ended up making quite a lot of orange juice that day as it was almost impossible to squeeze it all in.

In the chapel our focus over the last year has been a plan for growth and the future. Now that September is here we begin again at planning for what is to come. If we aren’t careful though, we can spend so much time looking at tomorrow, we can forget the today.

My day off is often spent doing housework and catching up, but I have been taking some time out and going to an Art Session for relaxation. The simple act of splodging paint on a piece of paper or colouring in wavy lines has helped me slow down and just be. I have learnt that when we stop, when we aren’t rushing around and we are prepared to be still, it is then that we notice the little things, the arguably more important things, and the creator God ever present with us.

The to do list can wait…today is only with us for a very short time.

With blessings,
Donna
