Dear Friends September 2018

Dear Friends,
 
Welcome back!
 
Is it me or is time really passing quickly? It feels like only yesterday that we were melting in the Mediterranean temperatures of July and here we are in September, though as I write we are still enjoying good weather with the first real autumn temperatures perhaps only just around the corner!
 
Time often feels like a piece of elastic – it can seem to stretch and go on for ever or it can shrink and pass really quickly depending on what we’re doing, who we’re with or where we are – this becomes more obvious as you get older (so I’m told). But we can also be the ones responsible for speeding things along. Already in some shops we’re seeing a combination of Halloween, Fireworks and Christmas goods on sale and we’re buying into them. Perhaps we could combine them and call it something like ‘Hallo Christ’!
 
Seriously, these days there hardly seems to be time to enjoy the moment, relive the experience or reflect on the journey! WHAT’S THE RUSH!!! I sometimes think we need to impose speed limits on our lives so that we don’t miss the best moments. How often do you take time out to be still and quiet, more importantly do you take time out to be still and quiet? In the midst of all the daily activity of our busy lives it becomes increasingly important to seek out those quiet moments, to find time just to chill out and be ourselves. King David the author of many of the Psalms in the Bible wrote “Be still and know that I am God!”
 
As we return to the more normal routine of life after summer the daily focus tends to be on meeting our physical and emotional needs but it’s more important that we do not neglect our spiritual needs too. So when those quiet moments occur take the opportunity to follow King David’s example and be still before the one who created all things.
 
In Christ

The Resurrection of Jesus

20 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples returned to their homes.
 

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb. As she wept, she bent over to look12 and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14 When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” 18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”; and she told them that he had said these things to her.
