Minister's Letter for October 2017

by Judy Povey  |  Posted at 04:23am on 14th October 2017

Dear friends,

'When it's good, the Church is like a temporary hospital housed in a museum. When it's bad, it's like a medical museum with once live exhibits recreating the full horror of how things used to be done in the old days'.

'Having a faith is a bit like visiting a stately home. Those who don't realise its historical significance head straight for the gift shop to see what they can get for themselves.'

'Often when I ask God what he wants me to do next, I'm just trying to get out of what I'm supposed to be doing at the moment.'

Those observations from Milton Jones do, I hope, give us pause for thought, if only in passing......because we know we will be passing each other in this busy autumn season of meetings and kick-starts.

This is still the beginning of a new church year- what a whirl these last few weeks have been, for all of us! What joy we are still finding in meeting church, circuit, and community people willing to welcome these strange folk from across the Pennines.

Wherever our commitments place us in time, sometimes bypassing each other on the way to the next meeting, sharing not much more than that look which says 'you're tired too- this church stuff is all go, it's fine as long as we keep going' ........well, maybe we'll pause here and there and remember to thank God for the Harvest of each gifted person around us, remember to remember blessings abounding, and grasp that amazing grace which catches us unawares.

So, encourage each other, find time to catch the wind of the Spirit, and be confident that the God of past, present, and future is blessing us.

When it works, church is like Lego- accommodating each other's nobbly bits makes us all stick together.'

God is working His purpose out- believe it, and live it!

Rev Sue

Those observations from Milton Jones do, I hope, give us pause for thought, if only in passing......because we know we will be passing each other in this busy autumn season of meetings and kick-starts.

This is still the beginning of a new church year- what a whirl these last few weeks have been, for all of us! What joy we are still finding in meeting church, circuit, and community people willing to welcome these strange folk from across the Pennines.

Wherever our commitments place us in time, sometimes bypassing each other on the way to the next meeting, sharing not much more than that look which says 'you're tired too- this church stuff is all go, it's fine as long as we keep going' ........well, maybe we'll pause here and there and remember to thank God for the Harvest of each gifted person around us, remember to remember blessings abounding, and grasp that amazing grace which catches us unawares.

So, encourage each other, find time to catch the wind of the Spirit, and be confident that the God of past, present, and future is blessing us.

Dear friends,

'When it's good, the Church is like a temporary hospital housed in a museum. When it's bad, it's like a medical museum with once live exhibits recreating the full horror of how things used to be done in the old days'.

'Having a faith is a bit like visiting a stately home. Those who don't realise its historical significance head straight for the gift shop to see what they can get for themselves.'

'Often when I ask God what he wants me to do next, I'm just trying to get out of what I'm supposed to be doing at the moment.'
