In the last letter we were all waiting for summer to arrive and it hasn’t it been well worth the wait. I know we all benefit from the sunshine and are doing our best to cope with the effects of too much sunshine and
overindulgence in ice cream and barbecues, yes, even those suffering the misery of hay fever!
During the summer period we do not do Private Sittings but these will commence again at the end of September. Summer is always a very busy period in the church with so many of the regular members and workers needing their holidays yet the need for church services continues. Should you require the minister please do not hesitate to get in touch. Visits to hospitals have if anything been more frequent in the last few months as illness and accidents do not take holidays. Fortunately those members who have not benefitted from long lazy days in the sun are making good recoveries so thank you for your healing thoughts. Loving thoughts are also asked for those suffering bereavement at this time. No amount of sunshine can ease that pain but knowing others care can bring a little comfort.
Visitors continue to arrive over the holiday period and we had a
welcome visit from Avril who had a two week break. She said the sun was hotter here than back in Australia! Althea’s daughter is also over from America complete with “Cast” for the play they are performing at this year’s Fringe. Pick up a leaflet when you are next in the church and lend them your support if anyone is interested in making up a small party we could all attend a performance.
The annual Introductory Workshop on Development will be on SUNDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER. If you are interested in attending and want to know more please ask Mae, Bernice or myself next time you are in church. We do like to offer those who are interested in working for others a little experience of the joy of a closer walk with God and Spirit. This is a very popular day and even experienced Developers like to join in the events so make sure you book a place soon.
Meantime, continue to enjoy summer.
