Here is a reflection for this Sunday based on the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem.
For something completely different … Children’s books often
contain a wisdom and depth that surprises us. I would like to share with you
some stories that I have found particularly helpful. The first is called ‘Big Moon Tortilla’ and can be accessed with the
password trinity on www.vimeo.com/showcase/6960151 More films will be added to
this site regularly.
The Methodist Church has put together some resources on wellbeing and resilience which can be accessed here Please get in touch if you need to talk about issues or concerns raised by the additional measures outlined by the Prime Minister today. May God comfort and bless you at this time.
Churches Together in England has issued a call to prayer by asking everyone to light a candle at 7:00 p.m. on Mothering Sunday, 22nd March, as ‘a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer.’ For more details see www.cte.org.uk/calltoprayer
We have now received official advice which recommends that all events in Methodist Churches be suspended.
Our next steps will include making good use of this website (and other means of social media) to provide regular updates and alternative worship/devotional resources.
As well as exercising good pastoral care, we will make local arrangements to mobilise help for those self-isolating and support foodbanks and other networks. In such an uncertain time this can be a proactive way forward.
