  • Scripture:

    Faith, hope and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.  (I Cor 13.13)


    In the week following Pentecost and the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Church celebrates God as Three-in-One. The word ‘Trinity’ was an invention to cope with an inescapable but inexplicable experience – Jesus the man revealing how God is, in every way, with us. 

    George Herbert wrote this inspirational poem; three stanzas each of three lines, the first addressing in turn Father, Son and Spirit, the second our past, present and future, and the third our bodies, minds and spirits. What a neat prayer!

    Lord, who hast form’d me out of mud,

    And hast redeem’d me through thy bloud,

    And sanctifi’d me to do good;

    Purge all my sinnes done heretofore:

    For I confesse my heavie score,

    And I will strive to sinne no more.

    Enrich my heart, mouth, hands in me,

    With faith, with hope, with charitie;

    That I may runne, rise, rest with thee.

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
    Now is still a time to care for your neighbour. Please, pick up the phone, speak to them. We are a strong community, a caring community. Together we are getting through this.

    Finally, I encourage you to use these prayers when you get up and when you go to bed:

    A prayer in the morning:

    Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples, ‘I am with you always’. Be with me today, as I offer myself to you. Hear my prayers for others and for myself, and keep me in your care. Amen.

    A prayer in the evening:

    God our Father, by whose mercy the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light,:we place in your hands our unfinished tasks, our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes, knowing that only what you bless will prosper. To your love and protection we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Keep safe. Keep well. Keep praying. God bless you. With love, David
