I have been delighted to take part in Divine Worship on Zoom, made possible by Mr. Ian & Canon Fiona Newton, with whom I’ve worked closely over these last months. Vast thanks to all.
Dear Friends and Parishioners,
These to me are the best months. I wonder if they are to you? We are all different, thank goodness; and the differences make life interesting. But how I love the change to gentle weather and vibrant growth. Like many, my garden looks best at the end of May: full, creamy, exuberant.
These are too the months of Celebration, of the Resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ, the Hope of Humanity. We are often worried by great things and by small things. The great thing is the Resurrection. Christ died for us all; and rose for us all. Our humanity is safe in His divinity. We are all valued, accepted and beloved. All that can and may challenge us is subsumed in His victory.
So take Courage. Be of good cheer. Christ has conquered and goes on to conquer, but very often gently and quietly.
May I wish you a beautiful Spring and let us share our delight. Yours truly,
Ian Whittle The Rectory, Langham 01328 830246
From: He was Made Man
What hath man done that man shall not undo,
Since God to him is grown so near akin?
Did his foe slay him? He shall slay his foe.
Hath he lost all? He all again shall win.
Is sin his master? He shall master sin.
Too hardy soul, with sin the field to try;
The only way to conquer was to fly.
But thus long death hath lived, and now death’s self shall die.
He is a path, if any be misled;
He is a robe, if any naked be;
If any chance to hunger, he is bread; If any be a bondman, he is free;
If any be but weak, how strong is he!
To dead men life he is, to sick men health;
To blind men sight, and to the needy wealth,
A pleasure without loss, a treasure without stealth.
Giles Fletcher 1586 – 1623
