    Sunday (9 August)…

    is the eleventh Sunday after Trinity. In the Gospel reading, as often happens in Jesus’ ministry, we are told that “he went up on the mountain by himself to pray”. Were it not for Covid-19, I might today be doing just that in the Alps. But I shall instead be in a Scottish forest, where I hope I will still be able to connect with God and nature. I pray that over this holiday season, many of you will also get to spend more time in prayer. It’s an unusual summer this year, without the normal crowded calendar of events, and many are seeking quiet getaways. Take the opportunity for spiritual reflection and refreshment. And if you aren’t going anywhere, do come to the private prayer sessions at church on Sundays 11am-12pm. With social distancing and face coverings, you should be able to pray in peace, without being interrupted by a tap on the shoulder of someone wanting to say hi! I wish you all a restful and blessed August!

    The text of the readings is available on our website for each Sunday.

    Sunday (2 August)…

    is the Eighth Sunday after Trinity. In the Gospel reading, we have the famous Feeding of the Five Thousand miracle, in the days before social distancing put paid to mass gatherings! We read that Christ comes ashore to find “a great throng” have come out to see him. Come the evening, the disciples are asking Him to send the crowd away to buy food for themselves, but Jesus says, “They need not go away”. He blesses just five loaves and two fish which feed a crowd of more than 5,000: “all ate and were satisfied”. There is no ‘water into wine’ miracle moment here: the people simply each take their fill and miraculously the baskets never empty. It is the same today - Jesus is always working in our lives, silently but surely, often without our even noticing. If we come to God, He will not send us away unfulfilled; if we trust in Him, He will provide.
