Isn’t it a relief to know that one day in seven — which for most of us will be a Sunday — God commands us to stop rushing and start resting! We are to find rest and refreshment in him, find rest and refreshment with his people and in the word and sacrament (both of which happen as we worship together regularly), rest with our families and rest, well, just generally! What a relief – we can bin anything which is not worship or physical rest.
This Sunday we have our monthly 4.30pm All Age Service at East Dean. And at Jevington at 11.15am we have Parish Praise with the new Jevington Sunday School. We also have Communion at 8am at Friston and 9.30am at East Dean.
Thanks too for feedback on recent experimental 4.30 informal worship + doughnuts – I will update us more on future plans in this regard in due course.
You will have seen (no doubt) on the news various reports of varying accuracy about this week’s General Synod of the Church of England. I will also say more about this in due course, but for now you may find it useful to look at the articles here and here and the outstanding Synod speech here.
