Letter for the month

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good Easter time and children had a enjoyable break from school. As youngsters get back to school for the summer term, for many it is exam time. Mocks, GCSEs and A Levels. I hope you get on OK, as long as you do your best whatever the final result may be. In the church calendar it is fairly quiet. On the 26th we church folk remember and celebrate the time when Jesus ascends in to heaven to reside with Father God until the time for Him to return. Easter saw Jesus crucified, dead then buried in a cave tomb on to be raised to life again after three days. Then over the next 40 days Jesus meets with His disciples and others before going back to heaven.  Complicated – not really but outside of human experience! This is where faith comes into play, I’ll happily [try} to explain if you wish to contact me.

By the time you read this the rate of Covid infections will have fluctuated up then down only to go up again, the war in Ukraine I suspect will still be going on and far too many people will have died. Hopefully our government will have made getting visas easier and so many Ukrainian refugees will have made it here to be housed and cared for by those who have rooms to spare. Many Christians and Christian organizations have led the way in providing care and support for those with illnesses , the refugees and homeless. Whilst many will have said ‘where is God in all this’, the answer is found in those Christians who have helped practically or financially in the acts of love and kindness.

May you find God through these difficult times.
