Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
At Christmas, don’t forget Easter
A long time ago, I gave a talk at Christmas, and afterwards a friend came up and said “Nice talk about Easter, Phil.” Or words to that effect. I was a bit deflated at the time, but thinking about it since, I think we do need to talk about Easter at Christmas. After all, Easter is why Christmas happened.
In Romans 1:16 we read this: “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel…” Isn’t it strange how at Christmas time, we can do just that? Be ashamed of the Gospel. We can talk of the incarnation, of God becoming a man and how extraordinary it all was. Simply wonderful news, so let’s celebrate. It’s less appetising to talk of why we need Christmas, of why Jesus actually came. And in a particularly Christmassy kind of way, we can in fact, be ashamed of the Gospel.
So let’s not be afraid, or ashamed of the Easter Gospel news, when we celebrate Christmas and talk to our friends about it over these coming weeks.
Happy Christmas. Happy Easter!
Christmas Leaflet Distribution
If you normally deliver leaflets around the parish the leaflets are outside the church office ready to be collected or will be at the back of church on Sunday.
There are some packs with nobody allocated to them. There are only between 20 and 40 leaflets in each pack so don't take long to deliver. Therefore if you have a spare 30 minutes it would be great if you could pop to the church office and pick up a pack. This will save the Church staff having to distribute the remaining ones.
Coffee and Chat after the Sunday morning service
This Sunday there will be another chance to join other members of BH on zoom for a chat. Everyone is welcome. Join through MyChurchsuite or the website. It will start at 11:30 (slightly later than before).
