December 2019/Januaru 2020 Newsletter


Dear friends,

As I write there are two big events looming. In chronological order they are a General Election and Christmas. Both come with big promises for the future.

Which promises do we believe? Unfortunately experience tells us that Politicians tell lies just to get elected. God by contrast shows us the way to a better world but leaves the decisions to us, and that is where we are found lacking. I refer you to the well-known song, "Let there be Peace on earth, and let it begin with me". Are we doing our bit? Do we try to bring harmony to our everyday lives at work and play? Church life without a Minister can be testing and pointing out others' failings is all too easy.

Let us all make a new year's resolution to see the best in our fellows and concentrate on God's way to the New Year.
