A thought…

We’re celebrating Harvest this weekend. It’s a reminder of the rhythms that have sustained us over the generations and a relationship of dependency with our creator God.  We live in a time of disrupted rhythms where much has become unreliable, and we probably feel less secure. All the more reason then to return to God in thanksgiving and trust, in familiar songs and rituals. These remind us that beyond the present trouble there is the promise of fullness of life and the assurance of ultimate safety.  If you’re coming to the zoom service can you bring something that represents Harvest to ‘display’ in your box. If coming to physical church, donations can still be brought. Alastair
