Vicarage Notes

Thought for the month

It hardly seems possible that another year has come round. The busyness of Christmas id dying away, but I would like to express thanks to all who shared in the special services here at St. Lawrence’s. As always, we welcomed many people to the Parish Church, decorated so beautifully for this joyful season.

Some of you may have watched the TV programme about life at Canterbury Cathedral, the mother church of the Anglican Communion worldwide. The work that goes on behind the scenes is amazing, though I did feel sorry for the choristers with their demanding regime.

After the martyrdom of Thomas a Becket in 1170, his cult became international, with churches around Europe dedicated to his name. I’m not convinced that Thomas was a very saintly character, but he did stand up for what he felt to be right, despite risking the wrath of the king.

As we look forward to the coming year, may we all be steadfast in bearing fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control – that is a saintly list!

Best Wishes &
God bless,
