July & August 2012

Rectory Ramblings

 

The Jubilee celebrations have come and gone – now on to the next thing and The Olympic Games! The poor old Olympic flame got rather squeezed out of view by the Dear Old Queen, but now it hoves into sight once more as other things fade into the background

Lawrence Austin

 

            You will all know, by this time, that Lawrence sadly passed away at the North Staffs Hospital on Sunday evening 15th May. His had been a relatively short illness, just 11 weeks from start to finish: as well as being a great servant of the Church, our Town has lost one of its great characters – and our love and prayers go to Jean, David, Kevin and Jane and all their families as they adjust to life without him

As per the last issue of the magazine, we shall be running the final sessions of the Emmaus “nurture” course in the first few weeks of July. Everyone is welcome – just bring yourself and a Bible – and offers of hospitality are gratefully received

Just as per last year, we hope to celebrate Sally’s Ordination to the Priesthood with a lunch, on July 11th. There will be sheets to sign for numbers at the back of both Churches, but there will be no cost!

Rectory Ramblings

All things being equal, by the time you read this our Benefice will have a second Priest. In accordance with tradition received from Biblical times, Sally will have had Episcopal hands laid upon her and the prayer intoned “send down your Holy Spirit for the Office and work of a Priest”. But how do people ever come to this point? Does God still write upon walls, as he did in the book of Daniel? And how do we know that we are being called by God?
