Sermon - Bishop of St Albans - 24/05/20

Last Sunday, the Bishop of St Albans, preached, and encouraged us to think about how we could be people who are generous and joyful even in these days of lockdown. He did recognise that this might take much imagination and courage. You can hear what he said again below.


Thought For The Week


Welcome to a new feature, a weekly thought to contemplate.

We say forgive and forget.

Jesus talked a fair amount about forgiveness. Is forgiving forgetting?

St Paul's Cathedral is hosting a national Book of Remembrance for those in the UK who have died of Covid-19.

It is suggested that family discuss the entry first which can include a name, a photograph and a brief tribute.

At Paul's are also hoping to house a physical memorial in time.

You can sign the book here: https://www.rememberme2020.uk/

Rest eternal grant unto them O Lord and let light perpetual shine upon them...

Some Upcoming Services and Events

It's been to be in the Vicarage garden today taming some of the overgrown bits. I found it very satisfying giving the strimmer an outing to try to deal with some brambles, to allow other things to flourish.

It reminded me that to enable our spiritual growth we need to keep an eye on what's growing where and what we might need to do to help that growth.

Sam is leading worship tomorrow, 17, 2020 at 10:00 AM

All Age Eucharist - 10/05/20 at 10am


Our worship on Sunday 10th May will have a family friendly feel. The service will begin slightly later at 10am.

We will share worship together on Zoom (via www.zoom.us or you can download zoom from your app store.) You can access the service with a meeting ID and a password which you can get by directly contacting Fr Simon.

Prep:
Could you all spend a little time finding on the internet and printing out 1 dwelling place, a home, from a different community around the world and be ready to talk about what you like about it or how you think it might feel to live in. You will also need a glass of water to use in the service too.


We will also be singing in the service using the setting that some of us have become familiar with at St Peter's at these services. Please spend a little time familiarizing yourself with the Gloria, the Holy, Holy, Holy, and the Lamb of God sections. Youn can find a YouTube playlist here:
