A message from the vicar (updated on 13 November 2020) Dear friends, Last week I unexpectedly found myself in hospital overnight. Since then I have been feeling really washed out and unable to bounce back as soon as I had hoped. I do thank church members who have given me support, especially Diane who has been wonderful. As I was indisposed Canon Suzy Bale kindly deputised for me at the cenotaph, assisted by Andrew. I am told all went very smoothly. Amidst the gloom of the present time has come a glimmer of light with news of the prospects of a vaccine coming out in the near future. We pray for its success so that life can get back to normal again. Another bit of good news is the defeat of Donald Trump, the man who callously made light of coronavirus, despite its devastating effects on the lives of thousands of American citizens. How the 84% of the misguided white evangelicals who voted for him must be devastated! They must feel that God has let them down by not answering their prayers, instead of humbly coming to terms with the fact that they were in fact making the wrong request. I never cease to wonder that in so many parts of the world evangelicalism and extreme right wing politics goes hand in hand. Once again next Thursday evening at 7pm we hope to hold another Zoom fellowship meeting. All church members are welcome to join us. Please let me or Emma know beforehand to get the necessary code. Everyone had a blessing at the last one. Finally, I urge you to continue to keep in touch with each other and to pray for all vulnerable, sick and elderly people. If you know of anyone, whether a church member or not, who has any urgent need please contact me on 01269 822275 or send me a message to my personal email, firstname.lastname@example.org. Tangnefedd Duw sydd uwchlaw pob deall a gadwo eich calonnau a'ch meddyliau yng ngwybodaeth a chariad Duw, a'i Fab Iesu Grist ein Harglwydd. With Warm Christian Greetings, Gyda chariad, 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.
