Thursday 8th October 2020

Dear Friends,

The days are getting darker and this coronavirus pandemic seems to not have an end. I don’t know about you – but it feels so much harder. Our local lockdown has now lasted for 10 weeks with no sign of any restrictions being lifted only further restrictions that may happen. It seems more important than ever that we need to keep in touch with each other like we did back in March. It’s time to be checking in on each other, praying for each other and being there again for each other. We are all struggling with not being able to see our family and friends. I know I would love to go and see my parents. Seeing them feels a very long time ago never mind giving them a hug. More and more people are seeking help for their mental health and accessing more online counselling services. I have been prompted this last week to look for the positives, to look for the joy and to search for those moments from God. With God we can face all that this pandemic throws at us. Psalm 91 says

‘Whoever goes to the Lord for safety,
whoever remains under the protection of the Almighty,
can say to him,
“You are my defender and protector.
You are my God; in you I trust.”
He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers
and from all deadly diseases.
He will cover you with his wings;
you will be safe in his care;
his faithfulness will protect and defend you.
You need not fear any dangers at night
or sudden attacks during the day
or the plagues that strike in the dark
or the evils that kill in daylight.

A wonderful image that we are under the safety of God’s wings. God will hold us and see us through the troubles that we face because He loves and cares for us. Hold fast through these darks days for we are under the shadow and protection of His wings.

Come and join together this Sunday for our zoom service – join the call from 10.40 for us to begin at 10.45am

If you have not received the zoom codes please e-mail the church e-mail address.

With love and prayers, Sharon
