Sabbath rest....

As I reflect on my sabbath rest - my sabbatical - these questions from Peter Mead ( Scripture Union daily bible study) got me thinking....

When you stop to think about what is on your to-do list, what are the first things that come to mind? Do you trust God with these things?
Do you trust God enough to take a day off?

Are you striving to please God for salvation? Rest in what Christ has done.
Are you stressed as you strive in your work, even in your work for God?
Resting can be the ultimate declaration of trust!

Let rest remind you of God’s goodness towards you and trust God's faithful provision!

A journey begins with one step and (with some trepidation) I start my sabbatical.

So, a prayer:
Loving God, in my journeying and my resting, in my listening and or reflecting please guide me and lead me afresh to the light of your truth, Jesus.
For I ask in His name...

Walthamstow - seen in passing....

How about this for a "mobile library"?
Households volunteer to host a "book house" which is stocked with books. People passing can borrow / add / replace a book and so the mini library continues....
What a wonderfully simple public service...!

Celebration tree

A great way to enable people to consider, with thanks, all that God is doing....
On the picture of a tree mark on its branches the "flowers" to be celebrated (Choir, worship band, Messy Church, etc. etc) and on each "petal" the names of people involved with that activity.
You can also place "flowers" (without petals) to note things you would like God's Spirit to help bring to fruition (eg Deepening Prayer Life, Meditation,  Young People's study of Christianity etc. etc)
I wonder what the 'Ruthin Town Churches' and the "Dyffryn Clwyd M A" would look like.....?
