Weekly Pew Sheet

WELCOME! 22nd Octoberr 2017 Nineteenth Sunday after Trinity

Thought for the Week from Canon Andrew
Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s.  As Jesus challenged the Jews with this reply in today’s gospel, so he challenges us and our inconsistent approaches.  We often blame God when things go wrong and ignore him when life runs smoothly.  The things that are God’s are acknowledging him each day in prayer and showing concern for others.  We cannot employ God as a casual “cure all” when we feel like it.  God offers more and expects more.

Services today at Holy Trinity
8am     Said Eucharist
9.45am Little Pebbles Sunday School (Crypt)
10am   Sung Eucharist

We remember those whose year’s mind is around this time: Brian Cook, John Cornick, John Jones, Sidney Day     Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord,
and let light perpetual shine upon them.
May they rest in peace, and rise in glory.

Vicar’s letter for October 2017

“Some years ago I was walking in the countryside around the village of Walsingham where at that time I was leading the Cornish pilgrimage to the Shrine of our Lady of Walsingham in Norfolk. As I walked I came across a sign which read: ‘Choose your rut carefully you’ll be in it for a long time’. I love this kind of humour, so often popping up in odd places: glimpses of humanity in a world that seems increasingly regulated and standardised.”
