WELCOME! 14th October 2018 Twentieth Sunday after Trinity

Thought for the week from Canon Andrew     In today’s Gospel, Jesus meets a man who had a lot of wealth. The option Jesus gave him was to give it all away and follow him. As we read he did not choose Jesus.  In our world the lure of the good life is flaunted in a myriad of ways.  Meanwhile, growing numbers have less and less to live on and little hope of changing their situation. In this atmosphere the temptation to grasp for more is very strong.  The call of Jesus is to move the focus from ourselves to the needs of others.  It is only through sharing with others that we receive him.

Vicar’s letter for October 2018

“I’m a country person at heart! I was brought up in a small country town in North Cornwall with a thriving market each week. Sadly it is all now long gone. But as children my brothers and I used to love to go to the livestock market and watch all the farmers bringing their livestock and produce to market. At Harvest thanksgiving we would take our harvest gifts to church and I remember a wonderful harvest choral evensong and a hearty harvest supper which everybody was involved with.”
