The Welland-Fosse Benefice: Prayers and Notices. Sunday 19th September 2021

The Welland-Fosse Benefice: Prayers and Notices.

Sunday 19th September 2021: Trinity XVI

 

 

  • Please pray for the sick including Jane Williams, Judith Piggott, Sylvia Martin and Derek Barker. Pray too for the departed, including Barry Broughton.
  • Please remember in your prayers Paul Elwys from South Luffenham who is to be Confirmed in Peterborough Cathedral on 10 October.
  • Zoom Morning Prayer continues on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8.30 am. Compline is on Thursday at 6 pm.
  • Next Sunday, 26 September, we are in church at South Luffenham, 11.00 am and also on Zoom.
  • Face Masks: up until now we have encouraged people to wear face masks in church but with the break between infections and hospitalization, the immunization rate and the space and airiness of our churches we invite you now to wear a mask or not, as you feel most comfortable. The Covid restrictions on the Holy Communion service will continue.
  • The county Council, working with Leicestershire, are busy housing Afghan refugees in our area. They have asked us to hold fire on further donations as the critical need at the moment is detached housing.  If you can help for at least a year, please visit the government website for refugees.

 

BARROWDEN: 2 October, 10 – 12 noon: a garage sale of books at Barrowden Rectory: theology, spirituality, history, reference, novels and some rare books. Most items 50p. 50% of proceeds to benefice funds.

 

MORCOTT:   there will be a ‘Pandemic Recovery Service of Remembrance’ for 3.00 pm on Sunday 17 October.  

 

SOUTH LUFFENHAM:  Sunday 26 Sep 11 am, Harvest Festival followed by Harvest Lunch in the Village Hall (tickets £10 from sally@saltlane.com).

Meditation.

 

Our green bushy garden has been adopted by a wonderful local cat. We’ve named him Willum. Willum is sleek and lean, stealthy and independent. We enjoy his presence immensely: all the benefits of a pet, and none of the work or bills! There’s a great sense of silence about Willum. He sits and looks, perfectly poised to move. We’re fascinated by his ‘otherness’. What’s going on in his mind? We aren’t sure. Is he simply focused on catching mice? What else does he think about? Scientists tell us we should be wary of interpreting him in terms of human thoughts and behaviour – of ‘anthropomorphism’.

 

Studying God’s behaviour can be harder than Willum-watching. After all, we can’t see God. We think we know something about Him from His creation – including the scriptures (a special sort of evidence) and our own personal revelations (about which we should be cautious, because we can so often be mistaken). Jesus helps us get a handle on what He’s like. He sets a model for our lives.

 

In the book of Genesis, the writer tells us we’re made in God’s image. But that sometimes reinforces our tendency to reduce God to human-size, just as we do with Willum, whereas in the book of Isaiah it says. ‘…my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord’.

 

Note to self. Must use Willum as a memory-aid to keep track of the amount of God-watching I do this week. What’s He up to?
