LiFT 27th January

Good evening my friends,

Another busy week marches on, with meetings, services, plans, and prayer. Without question the best part of any week is when I spend time with people – chatting, praying, being creative, and offering God’s love. I feel honoured, blessed, and immensely lucky to be with you all. Those things may sound like cliches but I hope you know me well enough by now to know that I say what I mean and mean what I say!

What news do I have for you this week? Well, I must remind you that we are going to be joined by Bishop Cherry to celebrate Candlemas on Sunday at Raglan Church, 10.30am. In addition we will be celebrating the second anniversary of her installation in the diocese, so I think there may be some bubbly involved, although she doesn’t know that yet! Do please come, it will be a lovely service.

And prayer requests for this week? I am aware that there are so many people undergoing treatment for various conditions and illnesses, many awaiting tests and assessments, or anticipating test results and treatment, and of course those who are looking after family and friends who are sick, disabled, frail, or vulnerable. January seems to stretch out as the month of a thousand nights doesn’t it? Please join me in praying for all these people, that they may find peace and comfort, and receive healing. 

Last but not least, can I remind you about the Advent activity we shared – Building a Community of Kindness. Let’s see if we can fill the final spaces on the walls and then perhaps at the end of February get those walls to me so that I can do something creative with them? If you have a burning desire to help or a great idea about how I might be creative please let me know!!
Don’t forget, I’m always glad to hear from you, and please let me know if you would like me to pray about anything.
With love,
Sally xxxx
