Vicarage Notes

Dear friends,

Despite the weather, everyone enjoyed the summer the and salmon lunch held over the village weekend by the Village Hall and Church  fundraising teams. Well done to all who worked hard to make the event a great success!

St.Lawrence’s has received the faculty for the redecorating of the interior and huge  thanks must go to Nadia Macall who’s taking on responsibility for the project.

Ancient and Modern

We are fortunate enough to enjoy a mixture of old favourites and  more modern poetry in our hymnbook. Some of the new material is easy to use with familiar tunes, but some have complex metres. There are many hymnbooks published today and browsing through Hymns of Glory – I read these words

Touch the earth lightly, use the earth gently
Nourish the life of the world in our care:
Gifts of great wonder, ours to surrender,
Trust for the children tomorrow will bear.

The hymn goes on to remind us that we are stewards of creation – do we leave a blessing for the future, or  …?

It’s good that today’s churches are often in the forefront of working for the future, with the possible exception of when we heat old buildings that were never designed to be heated!

Best Wishes & God bless,

Nicholas Morgan
