Although our church is still closed,
some of our younger people have collected memories from VE Day
and put up a display in the porch.
You can see pictures and memories here.
“There is a hope”
In the contemporary worship song written by Mark Edwards and Stuart Townend, the first two lines are :
There is a hope that burns within my heart
That gives me strength for every passing day
Today, as we face months of uncertainty in our lives, we all need to remember the hope we share as a driving force in all our lives:
Hope that stands the test of time,
Hope that lifts the weary head and drives all doubt away.
However difficult things may get for each of us, we must try to find ways of helping each other – and not give in to feelings of despair. We must, as Christians, walk hand-in-hand with Christ in the hope that better days will return, that schools and restaurants etc. will re-open and the dark days will pass.
I pray that we may all stay strong in our faith, help each other in every possible way, and look forward to the day when our churches re-open and we can look forward with hope to the future.
Stay safe and God bless you all
