It is so hard to believe that we are half way through Lent already!! This month of March I have set aside for us to reflect on Regret. Of course Lent is the time when we reflect on our relationship with God and that can cause us to have regrets about life, relationships, etc. Focussing on Regret is not so that we can beat ourselves up, but rather to allow us the time to discover if we indeed have regrets, and then to deal with them. Too often in my role as Parish Priest I hear of people’s regrets, and often it is too late to deal with them, and worse, they have carried those regrets for far too long, and they have had a debilitating effect on their lives.
So, this March as you continue your journey through Lent can I encourage you to read my blogs, as they will deal with this issue, if you are near Gordon, why not come to church on Sunday and worship with us, but, most importantly of all put God at the centre of your life, it will truly change it for the better.
This Month at St. Johns two important events take place, on Sunday 11th we have our first Evensong for the year at 4pm, and on Palm Sunday the 25th of March we have our Annual Vestry Meeting.
Please keep coming back to our site, we are endeavouring to keep changing the content where appropriate and trying very hard to keep you up to date with what is going on here at St. Johns.
With every blessing to you all
written by our former Rector, Father Bill Weston
God our Father, send your Holy Spirit upon the people of this parish. Give us a greater love for all. Make us more compassionate for the sick, the lonely and all in need, more zealous in the inspiration of the young, more concerned about the wider mission of the Church and more generous in our giving of service and money. Help each one of us to know what we ought to do and give us strength and courage faithfully to do it, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
