May 2006

Dear Friends

Easter has come and gone, and Pentecost is not far off. I’m enjoying being able to “Alleluia” again! Our Easter services all went well, and we received a number of compliments from parishioners and visitors alike. I much appreciated our lay input during the Good Friday Service, and I’m sure you’ll agree that we have some budding preachers in our midst! I found that our Baptisms added to our Easter Celebrations, a reminder that we belong to Christ, both through his crucifixion and resurrection.

Welcome back to all who have been away over the Easter Holidays—I trust you had a good break, and hope you managed to find a Christian Community to celebrate the Easter events. It would be good to hear of your experiences. I look forward to my time away over the next two weeks as it is always good to draw apart for refreshment and recreation.

Please take note of the various happenings listed in the “Forthcoming Events” section—some of which is further detailed in other parts of this publication—as we face a busy time ahead. I encourage you to involve yourself wherever possible in the life of the parish, and to stand firm for Jesus in your other spheres of influence.

Thank you to all who contributed to my generous Easter gift. It is much appreciated, and will be enjoyed!
