Minister's Message for February 2023

Hello everyone, as I write this at 4pm on 31st January the sun is still shining and there is a look and feel of spring in the air. I know it is a bit premature to write winter off just yet, but it is encouraging to see the signs of life all around us. The first month of 2023 has flown by and by the time of our March

Message the days will be even longer! Lent begin early this year - on Ash Wednesday 22nd February. One writer refers to Lent as "God's Springtime".

This suggests that just as in our gardens, pots, window boxes and containers, there is work to do to prepare for the coming of new life. There

are still old dead leaves to be removed and pruning when the time is right. In our spiritual lives these old dead leaves could be habits; actions and

ways of thinking that can hinder the life of God coming through. What needs pruning in our lives. The traditional practice of giving something up for Lent may help with this, but it may be even more helpful to take something on - perhaps reading a spiritual book, re-joining a group, engaging in positive actions - including random acts of kindness. We know that in 2 months time we will be about to celebrate the resurrection life of Jesus so let us use the time before then to get ready - looking forward in God's springtime. God Bless, Peter.
