Whilst I am a fan of holding to and celebrating different seasons of the church calendar, once in a while you get knocked off course! So it was last night at our last PCC of the current term. When reflecting on the past year, we were moved away from the usual Lenten sentiments, rocketing towards a general sense of thanksgiving, which is far more associated with the season of autumn. For when offered the opportunity to recall highlights of the last year, those gathered went into overdrive! Here are just a few;
PCC observed highlights;
- Thank offering raised for Operation Restoration
- Keep well and warm
- Start and CAP courses
- The Archbishop visiting
- Closure of the A6
- Silver Eco award
- Experience Christmas and Easter
- God’s amazing generosity and provision for us.
Now of course the list isn’t exhaustive and when it comes to our AGM held in late April, I’d encourage us to add our own reflections, but in the midst of national woes of strikes, inflation, and general incompetence, and additional strife across the world, we felt blessed and encouraged as a PCC that there is still much to be thankful for. I trust whilst reading this, you will be too.
Keep in touch
Keep the faith.
