We continue to pray for our NHS and government as they lead us through this current pandemic and for all those affected by this virus.
We would ask that as a congregation we continue to uphold each other in prayer and maintain fellowship together through phone calls and practical help.
One final word of encouragement:
We all had hoped that the effects of the current pandemic would have eased by this stage, it has been a long year and we find ourselves in a particularly difficult time for many in the community and within our families. Some are unwell both with Covid-19 and other illnesses and health conditions, others grieve a loved one, some face economic pressures and uncertainty, others are trying to balance work life with family life in lockdown and of course there are those who continue to feel the shadow of loneliness in the dark days of winter.
The Psalmist in Psalm 42 twice asks the question, ‘why are you cast down my soul, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?’. He finds himself asking that question in a place of darkness, difficulty and struggle. But he asks those questions of his soul because he knows that even while he struggles and suffers, he has a hope that lifts his head from his surrounding and circumstances, ‘why are you cast down my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God!’
If you find your soul cast down at the moment, if you feel that experience of inner turmoil in the weeks ahead, speak to your soul with that same hope, your hope is in God and you shall yet praise Him, the One who is Your salvation, Your God! Or as servants of God, myself and the lay chaplains are here for you if you need a pastoral call.
Till we meet again in person or the Lord Jesus returns and we meet in the air, stay safe and stay faithful.
