Rector’s Letter. February 2020

SarahFarrimondthumbThe new year is now well underway and the new church year (which began on Advent Sunday) a bit more established yet. As winter continues, we look for signs of spring, though these might be some time coming. In church, after all the activity over Christmas there is bit of a pause: time to draw breath before everything kicks off again in Lent and over the great festival of Easter.

But Lent shouldn’t just be a matter of arduous busy-ness. Anything we might do in Lent is for a particular purpose. It’s traditionally a time of fasting and of penance: of reflecting on our lives and turning our attention to God. It lasts for 46 days (40 days plus Sundays) mirroring Jesus’ fast and was in the very early years of the Church a time when new believers prepared for their baptism and confirmation, which used to take place at Easter.

Even now Lent is a time for taking new steps in faith. This Lent might be a time when you think about confirmation or about exploring a new area of Christian service. If you feel drawn in that direction why not speak to me or to Kate?

May God bless you

Best Wishes Sarah
