Well, we’re a week into our two-week lockdown (he says optimistically!) and I trust that you are resting in God’s calming presence as we wait. I’m looking forward to reflecting on how we can find refuge in God this Sunday - online only at 9:30 and 6:00 - based on Psalm 46. You might want to reflect on this passage before we gather together this weekend.

The other thing I’m looking forward to is taking some leave over the next couple of weeks. After this Sunday’s mid-year meeting (from 12:30-2:00) and online services I’ll be on leave for two weeks (back on the 18th). It’s been a pretty tiring few months and the opportunity to recharge is timely. We (obviously) won’t be going anywhere but I’ve got some reading to do, there’s still hockey to watch, and a few little projects to fiddle with.

I hope to see you on Sunday and then in a fortnight!
