This morning we met for our Parish Eucharist on a cooler and greyer morning than we have had of late,but the sun was shining again before the service was over. The Sundays of Trinity are mounting up, and we continue our readings from St Luke's Gospel. This morning we heard the story of Jesus healing the old lady who's back was bent over in the Synagogue, and how the president of the Synagogue objected to healing on the Sabbath. Father Stephen explored this theme in his sermon, discussing the role of healing in Christian life, and how we should strive towards inner calmness and well being in our busy lives. We sang a communion hymn as the Choir are still officially 'off duty' for August.
There was coffee after the service, and soft drinks for the children.
Wishing everyone a restful and restoring Bank Holiday!
