Hello everyone. It was great to see Mary back with us yesterday, giving out much needed hygiene products again. We missed you Mary!
I suppose in the scheme of things yesterday was quite uneventful. Simply a room full of people chatting and laughing. Enjoying the lovely food prepared by our friends from Silverstone. John brought the thought for the day and folks listened quietly. A relaxed atmosphere throughout the afternoon. What a blessing! Uneventful is good....there was time for one to one chats, the opportunity for me and Kim to sort some of the bags of very gratefully received clothing, time to serve. Service is what it is all about of course.
My mind goes on to the once very popular Graham Kendrick song, The Servant King. Jesus set such a strong example for us to follow Him while serving others.
This is our God, the Servant King,
He calls us now to follow Him,
To bring our lives as a daily offering
Of worship to the Servant King.
So let us learn how to serve,
And in our lives enthrone Him;
Each other’s needs to prefer,
For it is Christ we’re serving
I know that not everyone is physically able to serve, but many can pray for those that do. Sorry if I am slipping into a bit of a sermon but I believe it is good to share what is on our hearts.
Next week we look forward to seeing our friends from St Peters Weston Favel who will be catering for us.
