Vicarage Notes

Thought for the month

Forty days and forty nights – so begins the traditional Lenten hymn.  It is of course based on the story of Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness and the challenges he faced before embarking on his ministry.  “Giving up” is a reflection of the ancient discipline of fasting – “Taking on” is the other side of the coin and can be much more positive.

But if you do give up chocolate during Lent, put the money saved towards a favourite charity – you’re then achieving both ends!  For church members the Lent themes encourage us to look at our lives and learn to follow more nearly and to love more dearly – day by day.

Lent 2008 – Tuesdays at 7.45 p.m.

All are warmly invited to the Deanery Lent services – these have been held for 40 years now, and they still enable the local churches to come together both to worship and to be encouraged in faith.  The first is on the 12th at Pillerton Church, and Oxhill will be the host on Tuesday March 4th – do come if you can.  Flyers and posters with full details are in Church.
