You’ll have noticed there’s a wee virus doing the rounds. Well, sadly, not so wee, and one that is going to have a huge impact on all our lives. No one is quite sure how things are going to work out, but there will be impacts for some of us on our health, on our daily lives, on the lives of our family and friends, on our economy, and on our society. Things that seemed quite stable and settled just a couple of weeks ago now seem shaky and uncertain, maybe even scary. Somebody said to me “It’s like being in a film”. I know what they mean – and I’m certainly hoping for a happy ending
One of the things that this period of social distancing and self-isolation means is that churches in the UK are not going to be holding their usual worship services and other face to face meetings for a while, us included. But we are going to meet in other ways, and continue to stay in touch with each other, and deepen our relationship with God. We’ll post here and on our Facebook page how we’re going to do this.
Strange times like these can be a chance to re-examine things we’ve taken for granted for most of our lives, and think about what our life really is founded on. So if you’re feeling like this, then you’re very welcome to get in touch with David, the minister, or join us at one of our online get-togethers. David’s number is 07975531585 and his email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, here are some words for folk who are looking for something, or Someone, to lean on in strange times.
1 Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
2 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken. (Psalm 62, verses 1 and 2)
