Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
Do you remember the milkman? He’d come every day (and it always did seem to be a ‘him’) and on cold days like today, the blue tits may have got to your milk first, especially if it was full cream. But we didn’t seem to mind that much. It was rather fun to have those feathered robbers early in the morning.
But the thing I’d like us to remember is that the milk was fresh, every morning. Guaranteed. These days you may like to come down to the smell of freshly baked bread from your breadmaker (yes, we do live in Hove…). Either way, whether it’s the milk or the bread, they’re both fresh; new every morning. Just exactly the same as God’s love and compassion. On Sunday morning we’ll be starting a series on Lamentations 3, hoping to help with our mental health awareness as we navigate Lockdown 3. In v23 we read of God’s love and compassions: “They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.” Just like a fresh loaf of warm bread. Just like cold fresh milk on your doorstep. God’s love and compassions never get stale, they’re never ‘yesterday’s joy’. They are new every morning. Every morning. This morning. Tomorrow morning. Every morning. For you. And for me.
Booking of church services
Due to the continuing rise in COVID cases Phil has called a special PCC meeting on Tuesday to decide if Church services should continue at this time. Therefore the booking for services on Sunday 17th January will not open until after the decisions of that meeting have been announced.
