MEDITATION:

Bonfire Night has become a tradition in many of our villages. I remember taking my godsons to Barrowden when they were small and because they are French it was a very different experience for them. They enjoyed the hotdogs with tomato sauce smeared all over their smiling faces. We watched the different fireworks and stood round the fire until the heat was too much!

 

I have always liked sparklers, moving them round to make trails in the air and holding them carefully with a little bit of delighted fear when they reached their end. There were the Catherine wheels which always seemed to detach from the fence my father had so carefully nailed them to and they would lie on the ground spinning happily! The rockets and those which went into the sky gave a wonderful display of colour. And there were always those that simply dwindled to nothing!

 

Life is a bit like fireworks. Sometimes it just goes along steadily like a sparkler with highs and lows moulded into each other. At other times we can become detached from others and be sad and disappointed. But there are times when life bursts upon us and is colourful and exciting.

 

It is Jane’s funeral on Monday and her life burst upon all those who met her. She was not afraid of dying knowing that she would burst into the bright light of her Saviour. As we live our lives we need to remember the light that came into the world. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world and am with you always”. We have never needed that light more.

 

God bless

On Sunday 31st October the Benefice said farewell to our priest in charge
Following Eucharist Christopher delivered a speech and during a farewell in Christ ceremony,
he presented certain parishioners with symbolic
gifts to encourage the churches to continue the
ministry for We are the Body of Christ.

Geraldine said a few words followed by there youngest son
Who delivered an amusing overview of his fathers career
Champagne and lots of nibbles followed
A very happy occasion tinged with sadness
Lovely to have so many from the benefice
there chatting and laughing 😂

         

Thank you for your time with us and a Happy retirement .

MEDITATION:

As life progresses, we meet many people. Some drift into our lives for a few minutes, others stay longer. We remember them for different reasons, for the effect they had on us at the time and for the impression they left.

 

There are many hellos and goodbyes in life, some easy, some more difficult and others most distressing. We are saying goodbye to Christopher and Geraldine today. Goodbye means “God be with you” and that is a fitting wish. Jeremiah Rankin wrote a hymn for his congregation and said this about it:

 

“Written…as a Christian goodbye, it was called forth by no person or occasion, but was deliberately composed as a Christian hymn on basis of the etymology of “goodbye,” which is “God be with you.”

The first verse of the hymn is:

 

God be with you till we meet again,
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again.

 

It is difficult to say goodbye but all we can hope for Christopher and Gerry and for us is “God be with you” always.
