“In the deserts of the heart
Let the healing fountain start,
In the prison of his days
Teach the free man how to praise.”
W. H. Auden (last stanza of his poem “In Memory of W. B. Yeats”
Friends, even if we too may feel like we are isolated and imprisoned
because of the global pandemic, it is vital to remember that freedom
is a state of mind and a gift of the Spirit. We have the freedom to
dream, and to use our God-given imaginations to bring our dreams
to life. What visions do we have for our own lives – our activities
and friendships – and what hopes do we have for our church's life?
Is the extent of our dreaming limited to simply going back to how
things were, or is God giving us a chance to dream of how things
I pray that God will keep you safe and well, and that the Holy Spirit
will guide your dreams and imaginings. In the church year this
coming Sunday is celebrated as Christian Family Sunday. Please be
assured that you are an important and loved member of our faith
God bless you,
