A Message from the Minister continued.. Hope for the Future. Someone squeezes a tube of toothpaste hard and a great curl of paste swirls into the basin. But we didn’t want that much and it serves no purpose there. Can we return it to the tube, so that our accident can be recti-fied? We can no more do that, than we can take back the words we spoke but didn’t intend to cause mischief or pain. So here’s the thing, nature re-groups after busyness; it has a fallow season, a time of rest, when the night offers a calm, when sleep offers refreshment, when the dormancy of Winter hides the energy waiting to burst forth in Spring. Throughout our lives, during pandemics and famines, floods and grief, through harvests and growth, joy and laughter God keeps faith with us. When we know it and even when we do not, God is with us and will continue to be with us, offering us forgiveness and refreshment, new beginnings and hope for the future. Allow yourself to rest in God’s love. You do not have to solve all of the world’s problems, you do not have to prove anything to anyone. “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Keep safe, Shalom
