May the Lord our God lead us into all truth and guide us through the darkness of this world into His glorious light. The Lord be with you.
As clichéd as this sounds, it’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the year. Reflecting on the time that has passed one notices all the things that haven’t been done, and all the things that God, has done.
Here at St Mary’s, we have put in all but one of the new Aluminum doors, a massive accomplishment. A better laptop has been donated to the office. I had a visit on Thursday Morning to tell us that one of our prayers has been answered and the Municipality will be fencing the property between us and the Library – God is faithful, this has been on our agenda for some time. I think that while we acknowledge that as a community, we have lots to do to grow us to a level of sustainability, we must thank God for what He is doing in our midst.
Membership and attendance are a concern, but we must remain positive and committed to our vision to be the Church and the community and the community in the church.
Please continue to prayer fervently for our Church (for its people) especially the ill (this flu is terrible this year) and for those traveling at this time.
Pray for family life and for opportunities to grow in love with one and other and in God.
Be assured of my prayers.
