Gwyneth's April letter

27 Mar 17

April

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly each month passes by.  As we begin a new month, we have much to contemplate as we draw closer to Easter.

A small group of people have joined me during March to consider issues relating to our Christian life and the world that we live in.  How we live our lives is essential to our faith.  How we think, how we react to situations are both important in our Christian beliefs.  Some of the issues discussed in our Lent group are quite challenging regarding our attitudes towards the homeless, the starving, poverty and other issues are still to come.  At the point of writing this month’s letter for April’s magazine, we are about to discuss Session 3 (of 5), ‘Receiving Christ in Holy Communion,’ Session 4, ‘Receiving Christ through Prayer and Fellowship,’ and lastly Session 5, ‘Christ in You, the Hope of Glory.’  All sessions are welcoming and, even if you just turn up to one, it will set your thoughts toward God and create a sense of Peace in your heart in time for Easter.  Do join us in the Annexe on Thursdays at 7.30 p. m.

Hope in Christ is open to us all and as we reflect on Easter and re-enact the Passion throughout Holy Week, it is important for all Christians to feel God’s presence in thankfulness for His Son’s amazing, courageous sacrifice that He faced on our behalf.  I hope all of us can take this very special time in the Christian year seriously, soak up the atmosphere and give Christ due honour by being present at the selection of services for Holy Week, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Wishing you a very happy and Holy Easter,

Gwyneth.
