The Inside Column 10/5

Good morning and a warm welcome to all. If you are visiting with us we would love to get to know you. Please feel free to stay for a hot drink after the service.

Happy Mother’s Day! Where would we be without our mums? This came across my desk this week so I thought I would share it with you.

“It is the custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can’t) you would see your own mother doing this, and you would find it very interesting to watch her. It is quite like tidying up drawers. You would see her on her knees, I expect, lingering humorously over some of your     contents, wondering where on earth you had picked this thing up, making discoveries sweet and not so sweet, pressing this to her cheek as if it were as nice as a kitten, and hurriedly stowing that out of sight. When you wake in the morning, the naughtinesses and evil     passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind; and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on.”

― J.M. Barrie (Author)

The Marriage course starts tonight. I think every couple should do the marriage course, and if you have done the course some time ago you should do it again. I encourage you to invite someone you know. If you can’t bring someone but would like to be involved, you could offer to help one night in the kitchen helping serve and doing the dishes. If you would like to make a donation for the running costs of the course that would be very helpful as well as we are trying to make it affordable to everyone. Maybe you would like to sponsor a couple? Please pray for this course and all attending that their marriages will be strengthened and the course will run smoothly. Course information cards are in the foyer. It’s not too late to come along, just let me know this morning.

Dates for the Diary:

Friday 26 June we are having our annual fundraising Quiz Night. Put the date in you diary, get your team sorted and book in early.

Saturday 17 October is the date of the church fair. This is a couple of weeks earlier than last year. Please set aside the day to help, as the more people we have the easier and more enjoyable it is for all.

 

Yours in Christ

 

Philip
