  • Reflection for the week commencing Sunday 22nd May

    Scripture

    The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. 27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.  (John 14:26-27)

    Reflection:

    Jesus says to them, “Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” Easier said than done – for us human beings who let our minds wander and dream up all sorts of scenarios to be worried about! Maybe that’s why Jesus said this….because he knows each of us so well. To give us continued reassurance he promises that God will send the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will “teach you everything”; the Holy Spirit will “remind you of all that I have said”.

    And what was at the centre of Jesus’ teaching? “Love the Lord your God; and love your neighbour as yourself.” Not a bad thing to be reminded of by Jesus and by the Holy Spirit this coming week. Not only will you experience peace as you remember and practice this, you will also share that peace with others.

    Covid guidelines in public worship

    (Effective from Friday 28th January 2022)

     

    You'll be aware of the latest relaxing of the Covid guidelines by the Government. This is the line we are taking at St. George's:

    Hands: Please sanitise on entry and exit

    Face:  Face coverings are optional once again.

    If the church is busy you may want to wear a face covering.

    It's about looking after one another and being respectful.

    Space: Respect others; create space; make use of the whole church

    NHS Track & Trace: Please use the QR Code or Register

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Congregational Singing - will still take place. The “Safe zone” will continue to be made available, when possible, on south side of church. Communion: distribution will continue by “simultaneous administration” (i.e. intinction of the wafer immediately before distribution.) Refreshments will be served after the 10 o'clock service - please take your refreshments sitting down, as you would if you were in a cafe.

    Care:

    “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
