Communities supporting one another to grow and flourish in God's love

A prayer and a message from the Rector Sunday 25 October 2020

Father we thank you and ask for your Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us. In these troubled times may the Spirit still our souls and bring us closer to you. In Jesus name. Amen

We are lucky. Privileged one could say. Since the beginning of the lockdown I have heard people talk about how isolated they feel, how worried they are for their mental health, how lonely and afraid, I have heard people talk about being able to reconnect with nature as they have had the time to walk in the countryside and listen to the birdsong. I have heard people talk about finding themselves.
We are celebrating harvest in St. Matthews this week and we thank God for the good things of the earth. The produce we eat is important and we thank God and the people who work to produce our food. I would like to say again that we are lucky and privileged because we look in a different way to others when we look at nature and produce, when we look at relationships and the nature of our own selves. We see beyond these things to God the one who has created all the things we have around us and who created us. We were built, created, formed to be in a relationship with the God who loves us and knows us. He has chosen us to be His people and He loves us. Of course we look at all the beauty around us and thank God for it, but the difference for Christians is that we know and thank the one who made it all. We can see God’s hand in the world and in our own lives. We can feel the very presence of the Holy Spirit and we KNOW that we are loved and receive Grace and God’s blessing every second of every minute of every day. We are lucky. We are privileged. Harvest Blessings, Richard
