LiFT 11th May
Good evening lovely folk,
What a crazy few days – this is the first time today that I have sat at my desk!
I was really concerned by the weather earlier this week and know that some of you have been affected by water coming into your properties. I’m so sorry. Please get in touch if there is anything that you need. I can certainly email and ask for stuff if there is anything you need, and you are of course assured of my prayers.
While it was hailing and raining in biblical proportions I was in London, at the Buckingham Palace Garden Party. What an honour to be invited. You may be shocked to know that I went in formal attire – black cassock and cincture (sash belt) and really looked the part for you all! The food was lovely, the atmosphere was very special and I even got to meet a few amazing people that I either haven’t seen for ages or have only ever seen from a distance! A very memorable day. I came back down to earth though when I opened my emails – over thirty all needing a reply, I’m sorry if you are waiting.
Today I ran the first prayer bead session in St. Peter’s Goytre. It was a lovely afternoon and I do hope some of you will be able to make it to the ones in either Usk (Monday 10am) or Raglan (Tuesday 10am). No need to let me know if you are coming but I hope you can make it!
Right. Apart from a prayer request I’m going to leave it there – I still don’t have a sermon for Sunday and I need to get on with that!
The prayer request – I’m aware that there are several people coping with transitions at the moment – either as parents, working people, students, or those with health issues. Please can we pray for smooth paths, gentle change, and peace for all that is happening?
If you need prayers, please let me know, it is my pleasure to do that for you all.
Much love as always,
–Please note I will not usually reply to emails received on Fridays as this is my rest day. If you need me urgently please send me a voicemail on my mobile number. Thank you for your understanding.
