This reflection was given during our Sunday Service which also acted as our Congregational Annual Meeting, and included a report from our Treasurer
Scripture Readings: Mark 2:23-3:6
It’s a bit odd for me to be reviewing the year 2017 in the life of our congregation, not least as I spent most of that year off for health reasons. As I returned to work towards the end of the year, I remember vividly feeling an overwhelming emotion of thankfulness. This year is the seventieth anniversary of the National Health Service- and I give thanks daily for the people and the technology that have enabled me to return back to work after what could have been a very debilitating problem with my heart.
But I am also thankful for what happened in this congregation during that time.
