SOUTH LUFFENHAM:   Thank you to all those who donated to the Rutland Foodbank. We sent a good amount of groceries and generous cash donations this week. The collection is ongoing – there is a box inside Sally’s gate at 27, The Street.  Particular requests from the team at the Foodbank are:

tinned carrots, peas, small jars of coffee, jam, meat pies, cereal, tinned potatoes, rice, especially the microwave type, smash, long-life sponge puddings, sugar (500g), UHT full cream milk (blue carton). Washing up liquid, non-bio washing tablet, hand soap.

MEDITATION:   Father God, there are so many people to pray for during this time. So many needs, so many requests. This can seem so overwhelming to us as your church. Remind us that you can hear all the prayers, you can see all the needs, and you are a provider. Lord, as we face these uncertain times, may you use this time to grow us in our faith and understanding of you. May you use this time to remind us of our mortality and of eternity. Life is short. Remind us that we should live our lives ready to meet you at our appointed time and while we fear the unknown, we have assurance of salvation. We praise you, Lord, for Your goodness, your mercy, and your love. We know the COVID-19 outbreak did not surprise you. We know you are sovereign, even over this. Let that truth give us comfort, and may you give us opportunities to share that comfort with others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.             Simon Aley
