A prayer and a message from the Rector Sunday 9 August 2020

Prayer:
Lord of the stillness, lord of the storm, Lord of the shouting, lord of the calm,
Lord of the silence, lord of peace, Lord of my soul, rest in me. Amen

This week has been more normal for me in some ways. I have spoken with a daughter whose mother is dying, a wife whose husband has died, a new mother whose child is perfect, an older person coming out of lockdown and going out of the house for the first time in months. I have spoken to a man and woman who want to get married. A man who is afraid of going out and a young girl who is afraid of missing out on life by being inside with her parents. All of these people are looking at life and what is going on in our society now with different views and understandings of how life is at the moment. For each person their view of life is coloured by what is happening to them and their families and friends. For some this is a time when there is a storm and their life is lapped by troubled waters. For others there is a stillness and a feeling of waiting for life to start again. There is a yearning in all of us to get back to what was normal a few months ago. This week our reading is about Jesus walking on the water and approaching a boat. Peter is calling out to Jesus and stepping out of the boat, initially walking on the water and then slowly sinking and calling to Jesus to save him. Jesus lifts him back into the boat. Some of us are walking in the storm and others in the stillness but in all our different situations Christ comes to us and perhaps if we stop and listen we can here his call to us. Christ continually comes to us and walks alongside us.

Blessings Richard
