January Pastoral letter from
Rev Dr Adrian Burdon
It is my sincere hope
that you are in good health and in good spirits. I do not underestimate
the challenges that present themselves to us on a daily basis during
these difficult days. So much of what we would like to do is restricted.
I am very conscious that so many of us are struggling with loneliness
and isolation, finding it hard to see the good in anything and not even
able to attend church for worship. It is at times like this that we
realise the importance of supporting one another in as many ways as is
possible, reaching out and reminding one another of the love of God that
is shown to us in Christ. It is for this reason that I am so grateful
for those who are facilitating this means of contact and I so am pleased
to be able to be in touch with you today...........
