Vicarage Notes

As holidays for many draw to an end, we are mindful of the privilege of living in an age of travel with its opportunities of appreciating history, cultures and nature across the globe. There are sadly the risks – of exploitation, transfer of criminality inc drugs and arms, and the promulgation of extremism.

100 years ago in Oxhill, many were still employed on the land and there would have been a sense of self-sufficiency. No doubt there were stirrings in some circles about the political situation in Europe – but it was so far away.

The world is a very different place, but the life of faith continues, and the collect that the BCP sets for September 1st reads:

Almighty and everlasting God,
give unto us the increase of faith, hope and charity;
and that we may obtain that which thou dost promise,
make us to love that which thou dost command;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Most collects are one sentence, and this expresses our need to grow in the best of qualities, follow the 10 commandments and share the spirit of love. Seemple!

Harvest Festival

All are warmly invited to our special service this year. Tinned and dried foods will be donated to the Coventry Foodbank – fruit, veg, prerserves etc will be auctioned after the service for “Farm Africa” to which the cash collection will also go.

Please support the rest of the day as well!

Best wishes and God bless,
