The PCC meet last evening and would ask each of us to reach out to our neighbours, our friends, our fellow church members, to those who are isolated or vulnerable and also to those who we think “should” be doing fine. We are ALL vulnerable at this time, regardless of our age or our situations. May we be the light of Christ to those around us, now more than ever, Christ is risen, Hallelujah !!
I close with you some uplifting words of encouragement received this week from Bishop emeritus Peter Lee of South Africa :
“I have been struck by the words of an American rabbi on TV who said that social distancing is the wrong language to use; we rather need physical distancing but social contact and support. Loneliness and isolation can be bad for the soul, so we need to be calling each other and hearing a human voice; or internationally, we should be emailing to remind one another of our connectedness in the family of God, even when wholly unforeseen circumstances overwhelm us. And have a wonderful Easter, even if it is very different from what you have known before. Christ is risen“.
