Greetings to you once again. I trust that all remains as well as can be expected with you all.
As in previous weeks, I look forward to seeing some of you tomorrow either for the mindful meditation and/or in the time of conversation following. Further details about how to join this can be found at the very end of this email.
As always, please be in touch by if you would like to speak with me during the week and we can arrange a suitable time to talk properly either by telephone, Zoom or by taking a socially distanced walk somewhere in and around town.
My Harvest-themed address for you called, “Short-circuiting the parable of the mustard seed—a meditation at Harvest-time giving thanks for all the children involved in the School Strike for Climate movement”, can be found in written form on my blog by clicking the following link:

Love and best wishes as always,
If, on reading this, you decide you would like to join us on Sunday morning 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.
If you can’t come to the live Zoom meditation, at the following link, you can download an mp3 of the service I made for you back at the beginning of lockdown. For your delectation I’ll be recording a new, higher fidelity one in the very near future:
