How has the week been? What have you found out about God’s love for you that has made a difference? Each day last week we have been meeting and praying; listening to God as we discern where he is calling us. What have you heard?
How is the Holy Spirit nudging you?
It’s quite hard stopping and being quiet, almost counter-cultural in the busy, noisy way that life often is. It is important for us to consider together how God wants us to be, to listen to what God is asking of us, and then following Him.
Today is our annual giving Sunday. We do thank all those who have given financially for the work of St Augustine’s this year. Together with the Vestry we would invite you to review your regular giving and also consider whether you are able to contribute a one-off gift to some of the costs of parish ministry and
mission; taking into consideration your own personal circumstances. We do give thanks to the Lord for all that he has given us – all that we have comes from God. (1 Chron 29:14).
Next week we continue the theme of giving as we consider how we offer our time to God. Please prayerfully consider the many opportunities that are listed in the sheet that has been sent to you or available at the back of the church.
Micah 6:8 says this: ‘He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.’
Our blessings for a peaceful week.
Matthew and Claire
