Dr Lesley is away again, so no pictures I am afraid, but the snow had all gone by Sunday (thank goodness).

The gospel reading told of the anger of Jesus in the temple in Jerusalem.  He found it full of money changers and people selling sheep and cows for sacrifice.  He was justly angered at the way God's house had been turned into a market place.

Father Stephen echoed the gospel in his sermon  He told us that there are only 2 occasions in the New Testament when Jesus showed his anger, the first as in the gospel and the second when the pharisees refused to answer questions. Jesus is portrayed as being fully human, however he also exhibits his divinity.  It is normal to become angry in certain circumstances, but it would be wrong to think that Jesus' anger is born out of anything but love.  Anger can be a useful emotion, it is harmful to suppress it, but how it is expressed is important. Jesus is in control of his anger rather than the anger controlling him. St James' letter says that we should be quick to listen and slow to speak and anger.

Yesterday a Wine and Cheese evening with Silent Auction was held in the Church Hall. A good time was had by all and the magnificent sum of £868.15p was raised.
