As in all previous weeks, I trust things remain as well as can be expected with you all.
Please remember that if you would like to speak with me during the week simply reply to this email and we can arrange a suitable time to talk properly either by telephone, Zoom or on a socially-distanced one-to-one walk.
Please note there is now a new number for the church office. You can find that below my signature.
As usual, here are links to this week’s address/podcast written with Holy Week and our present situation fully in mind. It’s called:
Jesus or Barabbas, Carl Schmitt and Little Red Riding Hood — a cautionary tale for twenty-first-century liberals
Our next Wednesday Evening Conversation on Zoom meeting will take place on 7th April at 19.30 GMT. I’ll send a link out for that next week.
And, lastly, if on reading this you decide you would like to join us on Sunday morning for the service of mindful meditation and time of conversation following and do not have the necessary Zoom link then please contact our Church Secretary, Brendan Boyle, via the contact page of our website. Just look through the dropdown tabs to find “Secretary”:
Please log in between 9.45 and 10am. The meditation starts at 10am sharp, and finishes about 10.50. There will then be a short break to allow you to stretch your legs, compose your thoughts, or put the kettle on. The ‘Time for Conversation’ will start about 11am, and if you aren’t taking part in the meditation, feel free to sign in during the break for the conversation.
To get the most from the meditation, you will find it helpful to either print out the order of service, or display it in a second window. Here is the link:
Order of Service for the Mindful Meditation
You might also wish to have a small candle or tea-light to hand to light at a certain point during the meditation.
A representative recorded version of the service is available for download via my podcast site here:
With love and best wishes as always,
