Good afternoon friends,
You will find attached a letter and an article regarding the launch this week of the ‘Diocese of the Southern Cross’, which has been reported in the news; I hope it helps to explain the situation and will gladly attempt to answer any questions you may have.
Tomorrow- Saturday- is the Recycling Hub, open from 9 to 11 am; maybe I’ll see you there! Marian will take your recyclables on Sunday following each service if you can’t get to St Nic’s tomorrow.
This is from the Revd. Dr Elizabeth Smith, in response to the events of this week:
God of love, we pray for the unity of your Church in all the world.
God, give us grace to persevere in communion with one another
through differences of opinion on many matters.
Keep us true to the Good News of Jesus Christ, crucified and risen.
Teach us to embrace with joy the diversity you keep on giving us:
women and men, old and young, gay and straight,
people of faith from every race and language and culture.
Show us the face of Jesus in every one of our neighbours. Amen.
The Reverend Lorna A M Green
