Wednesday 25th March 2020

I awoke early this morning and heard the Dawn Chorus.  It's odd, isn't it, to think of the birds, animals and flowers making their way through this spring quite 'normally', unaware of their context on Planet Earth!

We've had some super offers from members of the church community to help with shopping if required.  So if you, or someone known to you, needs such assistance don't hestitate to contact me and I'll put you in touch.

This morning I meet with the Church Secretary and Church Tresurer 'virtually' by something called 'Zoom'!  Being something of a Luddite when it comes to technology I'm not entirely optimistic at the prospect.  What I do know is that these 'meetings' have become very important so that discussion can be had and decisions made.  The notes of these events are then circulated to the Elders for any further input - and that's the way we are working at AFC at the moment.

I'm delighted that our first Thought for the Week is published today on the website and Janet has wrtten a wonderfully uplifting piece for us.

One of our Regional Ministers, Colin Pye, wrote at the weekend: It used to be said, you can't teach an old dog new tricks, well now we've all discovered that you can...

It's true - we are all learning how to do things differently - and how to do them well.

May you, today, know the blessing and presence of God in all you do.
