Of course we didn’t collect those names because we hoped one day they would prove to be priceless in an Antiques Roadshow valuation - we were asking for names we could carry with us in to our future. As we start the New Year there will be people whose names we carry with us in our hearts. Some of them, we know, helped shape our days; others we may not be so certain abut. Each of us is a living album, carrying about memories and people we love. Each of us has God’s signature within us and we carry that throughout life, even when we don’t quite know for certain what that means . We may not carry little books about these days to collect signatures (someone might suggest that leads to identity Fraud) but the Creator whose name we bear would, I believe, write in our heart-albums: “You are my precious child and I will never abandon you.” That seems to me a splendid thought as we begin the New Year. May our lives be filled with love and laughter and may we discover unexpected joy. Shalom, Salaam Elizabeth Minister’s Sabbatical from February 2019 Elizabeth will be on Sabbatical leave for 13 weeks until May 6th. During that time, please contact Church Secretaries in the first instance or Geoff Townsend for any Minister-related matters. Geoff is going to be chairing meetings and preaching where you would normally see Elizabeth. Geoff has also offered to lead a Lent Study Course at the venues and times we used last year- Monday mornings at Crick and Wednesday afternoons at Creaton. The five session course will be the York Course for 2019: Daring to see God now. Notices/ flyers about the course will come to all churches early in 2019. Shalom, Salaam Elizabeth
