Thought for the week.

Thought for the week.


As the summer sun continues I can hear various sighs of relief for all the events that will do better if the rain holds off!

Fetes, produce shows, concerts, fun days, beer festivals, rallies, picnics and many other events will all have so many more supporters, if the weather is good. And that’s a good thing, because these events that get people together are so important in a world where many of us don’t even know who our next door neighbour is.

One of the great losses in our society over the past couple of decades has been that loss of community and one of the worst fears that many people have is being lonely. We are made to be together, it’s part of what makes us human, and Christians believe that God made us that way - so go and join in something.

Make and be a friend today.
