Jottings from the Vicatage - November 2014
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
November is as we know the month in our church when our collective thoughts turn to remembrance. We are given significant time through the month to reflect personally with All Saints & All Souls days, on those whom we have loved and for the present time are separated from. For we know that through the promise of Jesus Christ to mankind, that all who believe in Him, “will inherit eternal life”.
Also we will be coming together on Remembrance Sunday 9th, as a nation to give thanks to Almighty God, for the sacrifice made by so many millions worldwide, who over the past hundred years, have paid the ultimate sacrifice to allow us to be able live our everyday lives. I’m sure that this fact on not lost on any of us.
We continue to try to live our everyday Christian lives, in the way which Christ Himself gave us as an example. Conscious of our responsibilities as followers of Jesus, to ensure we do our best to leave this world a better, safer and happier place, than some of us have known it to be during in our lives span.
God has made it very clear to us through the Prophets of the Old Testament and through the Gospels and Epistles of the New Testament, the way in which He expects us to conduct our lives. By doing what God commands us to do, we can be absolutely certain that we will inherit eternal life.
What I personally look forward to as November draws to a close, is the expectation of a new beginning. ‘Christ the King’ is the last Sunday of the Church Year. We then immediately move in to the season of promise, Advent. This season of hope and expectancy, when in the four weeks before Christmas, we should be spending our time in reflection and in anticipation of the Coming of our Lord. Sadly these days a lot of people miss out on this important preparation. They just see it as no more than a time to prepare for Father Christmas!
So, we have decided to purchase an aid to help each of you see the significance of Advent in our Christian lives this year. Everyone will be given an Advent booklet to use daily as a guide and I hope it will inspire you all and focus our minds on the importance of Advent. I do also hope that you will all be able to attend our own ‘Advent Service of Light’ at 6p.m. on Advent Sunday 30th. This service of ‘Darkness to Light’ with its lovely Advent Carols and readings, will be for us a sign of hope of things to come. Please make every effort to join us for this service as we wait expectantly for the Coming of the Christ Child.
May God bless you all,
