It's been a difficult week. As you know, we have taken a direct hit from the effects of the pandemic and lockdown, by having to make the painful decision to close Cleo's Cafe.
Our sermon today, from Archdeacon Simon, is based on the Gospel reading (which is missing from our service video - sorry!), Matthew 14:22-33. Jesus walks across the water to meet his disciples, who were feeling battered in their boat. At first, they thought Jesus was a ghost; Jesus reassured them, then Peter asked Jesus to invite him to come to him. We are out of our depth at times and Jesus comes to meet us. Like the disciples, strangely, we don't always recognise him, but when we let him in, he calms the storm and we can worship him.
Please continue to pray for our parish, especially those closely connected with the cafe (Joan, Ryan and Christine) and their families.
Thank you to all those who have offered support. As always, please keep in touch.
With love and God bless,
