Letter for the month

Here we are half way through the year, mid summer’s day approaches with more significance this year than previous years. June 21st is the day earmarked for ending the legal restrictions that have been in place for over 18 months; it is also set aside for Suffolk Day. So, it looks like two good reasons to celebrate. Certainly, Suffolk has a lot to celebrate from coast to country, beautiful seaside resorts and quiet coves, gently undulating colourful fields, numerous country walks, loads of history and village or towns offering shopping opportunities and places to stay and eat. As we celebrate can I just nudge you to thank God for all the good things that make up Suffolk including the people all around us. Yes, I know that there are some that are not behaving in good ways but we have seen more good over the past year than not. As we move into no restriction times, I hope that we will hold onto the positive behaviour, concern and care towards others including respecting others social distancing, respecting those in front line working positions. Please don’t resort to taking for granted these folk!

Witnesham Baptist Church will continue on line for the next couple of months or so – tune in to Witnesham BC on YouTube for weekly message. Reason for this delay in regathering on Sundays and during the week is to respect peoples’ health and well being as many remain in the vulnerable groups. Whilst Sunday message is on YouTube I am around and contactable by link on web site or phone 07851060482. If you would like prayer for anything or person you could pop a note in the church letter box and I’ll pick it up. God Bless all and celebrate and meditate on all that is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. [Bible, Philippians 4v8]
