July 2020 - Pastor’s thoughts of the present time
I hope and pray that this note finds you and your loved ones well and coping with the present situation. It seems a long time ago since we last met in person back in March and how our world has changed since then!
Since the announcement by the Prime Minister on the 23 June that churches could reopen for services as from July 4th with guidelines and restrictions imposed to be ‘Covid Secure’, Terry and I have considered the situation bearing in mind firstly our safety when we come to church. We have decided, after talking to the friends who come along on a Sunday, that we wait for a few weeks and see how the situation develops with the pandemic. At this present time we plan to recommence meeting on Sunday 6th September at 10.30am, but with the option that if things dramatical improve we may consider meeting earlier than September 6th. We will keep you all informed of any changes to the plan
One fact is clear at this time, and is that things will be very different in the days and weeks ahead for us all. We can take confidence in the truth that our God doesn’t change as the words in Hebrews 13 v 8 make clear, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.’ May we live each day going forward in deep trust and confidence that the Lord Jesus is right by our sides throughout our daily lives and He is able to help us through life and its up and downs. Let us all also remember our motto verses for 2020, when we started this year of 2020 we knew nothing of how the year was going to unfold before us! We read Paul’s words from his letter to the church in Ephesus, ‘Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Just for your information and encouragement, if you would like to watch some weekly devotions on the theme of prayer during a pandemic and recent sermons these are available on our own website. (www.lowmoorchurchwigton.org.uk)
I came across a poem that Ben Parker who used to come to our lunchtime Bible study passed on to us. I would like to finish with quoting the words from that:
Our times are in Thy hand; Father, we wish them there! Our lives, our souls, our all, we leave entirely to Thy care.
Our times are in Thy hand; whatever they may be; pleasing or painful, dark or bright, as best may seem to Thee.
Our times are in Thy hand; why should we doubt or fear? A Father’s hand will never cause His child a needless tear.
Our times are in Thy hand; Jesus, the Crucified! The hand our many sins have pierced, is now our guard and guide.
Our times are in Thy hand; We’ll always trust in Thee, till we have left this weary land, and all Thy glory see. Amen.
May God keep and bless us all with his peace and joy at this time. (Please read Numbers 6 v 24 – 26)
