Sunday Reflection

To not lose heart can be one of the biggest challenges of our faith. We can get so impatient sometimes and feel that God has not heard our prayers when they are not answered immediately. We live in a world of instant gratification, instant coffee, instant contact, a touch of a button on our computer and we can be anywhere in the world! But Jesus in today’s gospel is asking us to be patient, ‘pray always and do not lose heart’ Our prayers will be answered, maybe not in the way we are expecting, but answered in the way that is beneficial to us.
Jesus, teach us to trust you and not lose heart when we call on you in prayer. Our ways are not your ways and our thoughts not your thoughts, keep us faithful in prayer Lord.

Why is this lad looking so happy? Well his name is Josh (alongside Mum Hannah) and he has just been baptised and confirmed.

We will be running a course from January 2020 which aims to develop lay leaders in our parish to equip them to be led more by Jesus, to lead more like Jesus and to lead more to Jesus.

We are doing the Christmas Day lunch this year, providing a three course meal for some of the most lonely and socially marginalised people in the area,
