Sunday reflection 22 August 2021

Dear friends

Welcome to another time of worship.

It is with particular delight that, as the schools return, we rejoice in our children of Junior Church back in the Sanctuary. My thanks to the staff and helpers, when we were actually allowed the children in the large hall only, who kept the connection with the children a live one. So I am excited to have them back in the pews – another step in the right direction.

Our Church Magazine is now out in print and email. The pictures are super, reminding us of what Summer in Scotland could be like.

In our prayers this day please remember Afghanistan and Haiti in particular. Last Sunday the theme of the service was ‘wisdom’ but I wonder, in the light of events in Kabul, how much wisdom has been used as that country changes dramatically and radically.

Locally, please remember the Yip family, after Wai Yip’s funeral on Tuesday; the Anderson family for Colina Desport’s funeral on Thursday; the Walker family, with the death of Alexa Walker on the 14th of August and Christine Limond as we remember Robert.

My thanks to those who support our Church work throughout the week in many forms, like Gordon Smith who kindly played at our WD40 service.

No more bookings but when you are in our Sanctuary, but please remember your details for Test and Protect.

Every blessing,
