Letter to parishioners, 13 May 2022

Friday, 13 May 2022 Dear Friends in Christ, Our readings this Sunday speak to many issues we encounter in our everyday lives. Many of those issues we dismiss as being ‘political correctness gone mad’. We belittle their importance and we carry on along our own self-serving paths from birth to death. Our readings this Sunday…Continue readingLetter to parishioners, 13 May 2022

Letter to parishioners, 7 May 2022

Saturday, 7 May 2022 Dear Friends in Christ, I should begin by apologising that I did not send the regular Letter to Parishioners last week. I’m afraid that benefice, deanery and diocesan commitments mounted up in a way that left me no time to write. Thankfully, this week has not been quite so ‘action-packed’!

Saturday, 9 April 2022 Dear Friends in Christ, What is most occupying your mind at the moment? The war in Ukraine and the military and political tensions that are surrounding that horrific violation of all that we hold dear? The national and international fuel crisis that is forcing many into having to make a choice…Continue readingLetter to parishioners, 9 April 2022

Letter to parishioners, 31 March 2022

Thursday, 31 March 2022 Dear Friends in Christ, On Sunday we enter Passiontide. For many it seems odd that the final days of Jesus’ earthly life should be described in a term we associate with the exact opposite of the injustice and cruelty he endured on Good Friday. We associate the word ‘passion’ with the…Continue readingLetter to parishioners, 31 March 2022
