This month’s letter from the Vicar

Dear friends,

God doesn’t have a holiday!

Working through a desk groaning with paper on a glorious sunny summer morning, I just happened to wish out loud that I was on holiday. However, I was soon reminded by a parishioner of the wonderful truth that God doesn’t have holidays.

So wherever you are, at home or away on holiday, be assured that our loving Heavenly Father is always with you. And please don’t miss the opportunity to worship whilst you are away: give thanks to God for the gift of a break and for the wonderful world of which he has given us stewardship.

Recently, I mentioned in a conversation that I get very little sleep, and that I have found two texts to be of great comfort. Since then I’ve been asked over and again what they were. The first is from Psalm 139:

If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will cover me, and the light around me turn to night,’ Darkness is not dark to you; the night is as bright as the day; darkness and light to you are both alike.

The second is from Psalm 121: My help comes from the Lord The maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved And he who watches over you will not sleep. The Lord himself watches over you The Lord is your shade at your right hand, The Lord shall preserve you from all evil, It is he who shall keep you safe.

Have a great holiday if you are going away in the months of July and August. With every blessing.

Yours Sincerely,

Revd Canon Andrew Gough
