Thought for the week
We are currently holding a “blended” Meeting for Worship in the garden of the Meeting House, and on Zoom. We can seat a maximum of 23 people and there is therefore a small possibility we may turn you away if we reach our maximum numbers. We ask visitors to the Meeting to email firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand for safe joining instructions. For those who enjoy online meetings, there is also the option of joining with Zoom. Please contact Marian McNichol to join this. Alternatively, we hope that Friends will “worship where they are” on Sundays from 10.30 to 11.15. In this way we hope to sustain together a strong worshipping Meeting. We hope to have a new “thought for the week” here each week, with the hope that it may be used as an aid to our “gathering” as a meeting each Sunday morning. Previous “Thoughts” can be found here. If you have suggestions for passages, please contact Sue Cariss.

“Be aware of the spirit of God at work in the ordinary activities and experience of your daily life. Spiritual learning continues throughout life, and often in unexpected ways. There is inspiration to be found all around us, in the natural world, in the sciences and arts, in our work and friendships, in our sorrows as well as in our joys. Are you open to new light, from whatever source it may come? Do you approach new ideas with discernment?”
