A message from the vicar (updated on 8 January 2021) Dear friends, The crossing of the Red Sea is one of the most exciting stories in the Bible. It tells the tale of the Israelites escaping from slavery in Egypt. They are pursued by Pharaoh's army, and before them lies a deep, deep river. They are trapped and don’t know where to turn. They are fearful to go forward in case they drown, turn back they cannot as certain slaughter awaits them. In their despair they cry out to Moses, who reassures them that God will rescue them. He then dramatically stretches forth his hand and a path opens in the middle of the deep waters enabling the people to escape to freedom as they journey towards the Promised Land. God was faithful and delivered his people from evil. At the moment, in many ways we find ourselves in a similar situation to those terrified Israelites as we struggle to escape from the ravages of coronavirus which is ruthlessly pursuing us. Deep waters are ahead of us which are causing many to panic. However, we should take heart, for it's always darkest before the dawn. As God long ago prepared a path through the perilous waters for his people to safely travel along, so too he has provided a pathway to deliver us into freedom from this current evil. How? By working through medical researchers enabling them to devise vaccinations to protect us from this dreadful virus. 'God works in a mysterious way, his wonders to perform'. In the meantime I urge you all not to let down your guard and to be vigilant and not to put others or yourselves at risk by bending the rules. Please continue to keep in touch with each other by telephone and any other means possible. I also urge you to pray for all vulnerable, sick and elderly people; as well as for the families of Alan Jones and Brian Harries as they come to terms with the gravity of their loss. If you know of anyone, whether a church member or not, who has any urgent need please contact me on 01269 822275 or by send me a message to my personal email, email@example.com. Gras ein Harglwydd Iesu Grist, a chariad Duw, a chymdeithas yr Ysbryd Glân, a fyddo gyda chwi oll. Amen. May the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, rest upon you and all your loved ones. May he give you light to guide you, courage to support you and love to unite you, now and always. Amen. With Love, Adrian A special prayer during the coronavirus pandemic Loving Lord, we commend to your love and care all those who are suffering from the coronavirus throughout the world. Comfort those who have lost a loved one with the illness. Give wisdom to policy makers, skill to the researchers and help to everyone in distress. Bring a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord who showed compassion to the outcast, acceptance to the rejected and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.
