Minister's Message


 

May 6th, 2020


 

“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


may become?


 

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


family.


 

God bless you,


 

Joyce Fergus-Moore
