Pete and Ruby Kasprowicz
All those who care for those in need.
We thank God for answered prayer and ask that he helps us to understand that all things do work together for good.
We are saddened to hear of Gwyneth’s death following a fall. We have heard Gwyneth’s preaching from our pulpit many times and much valued her leading worship with us. She began preaching 60 years ago and stopped within the last couple of years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
Rev Phil Poole and Deacon Lisa Rathbone
Please also pray for Phil and Lisa. Lisa’s father died within the last week and Phil’s mother has just been diagnosed with a recurring cancer.
They both need our support particularly with Phil handling a bigger work load during Richard’s sabbatical.

I cannot pass my faith on to others as a doctor injects a patient with serum.
I cannot pass my faith on to others as a service-station attendant fills a car with petrol.
I cannot pass my faith on to others as wharf-labourers move cargo from one ship to another with cranes.
I cannot provide a pill that produces faith when it is swallowed.
I cannot explain my faith as a teacher explains a mathematical formula.
I cannot demonstrate my faith as a clever lawyer demonstrates the innocence of the accused to a sceptical judge.
I can only prove my faith by letting Christ heal my entangled, sinful life.
I can only prove my faith by praying for others, as Christ prayed for Peter and others.
I can only prove my faith by doing loving deeds to others, even as Christ revealed his love to the sick and hungry.
I can only prove my faith by being ready to forgive and forget the evil words and deeds of others, even as Christ forgave His enemies on the cross.
I can only prove my faith by being prepared to suffer for others, even as Christ suffered for others.
I can only prove my faith by not letting my failures deflect me from my calling, even as Christ could not be deflected from His course by the people’s unbelief.
I can only prove my faith through the power of the Holy Spirit, given by Christ.
