The Inside Column 26/3

Good morning and a very warm welcome to all.

As we have being looking at the spiritual Disciplines over the last couple of weeks I have become more and more aware of how countercultural the disciplines are. In a world that can be so much about looking out for one’s self, the spiritual Disciplines are a radical call for us to live a different way to spend time with God and for him to transform us. I have found them very challenging, and my prayer is that you too will find them challenging and life changing.

We welcome a new vestry on board. The vestry is a group of people that give their time, energy and wisdom to the running of the church, like a management group. I am very grateful to this group and I would ask you to keep them in your prayers.

Simon Marry will continue in his role as People’s Warden, so if you have any concerns or ideas that you would like the vestry to know about he is there to speak to, in fact you can speak to any one on vestry and they will be more than happy to help.

Glynne Suckling has accepted the invitation to be my warden and I know he will be a great support for me, and a great asset to the church. As part of the combined services next week we will welcome the new vestry officially.

Next week is Palm Sunday. It is a combined service starting at 10.00am and there will be a shared lunch after the service as we farewell Edrick. Please bring a plate with plenty on it, we have on previous events run out of food!

I will leave you with a quote from Mother Teresa that I will be using in the sermon this morning.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

Yours in Christ

Phil
