Thought for August, 2018.
“The Bishop is coming!” said, Thomas Brown in the television series, ‘Larkrise to Candleford’. When watching this some time ago this statement had little meaning to me personally. BUT, the Bishop did come, and not only one but two. What’s more there’s a third on the way, next month! Bishop Christopher (Lincoln) spent a couple of hours at our Café Church barbecue in June and spoke to us of the love of Jesus and the importance of prayer. Bishop Nicholas (Grantham) visited the Men’s Group at the Royal Oak in Holton le Clay in July when he was asked about how he became a Bishop. These two events have shown how important our Christian faith is to many people today and how others have questions about life and faith that they would like to explore further.
Café Church on the third Sunday of each month (the next is September) gives the opportunity to do just that. The Men’s Group which meet on the second Tuesday of each month provides another such opportunity. We welcome anyone who wants to come and join these groups. Sadly, I was told not to attend the Men’s Group, but perhaps there’s a good reason for that! Bishop David (Grimsby) will be at St Peter and St Paul, Tetney on 14th September to share his ‘Desert Island Discs’. Please come along.
August is usually regarded as the summer holiday month. If you are going away enjoy a well-earned rest, and if not, make the most of a quieter time to put your feet up and renew your energy. Jesus did just that on a number of occasions.
