The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

May the God of peace make you perfect and holy; and may you all be kept safe and blameless, spirit, soul and body, for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

A Thought for Today

He whose “kingdom is not of this world” taught me that true wisdom consists in wishing to be “unknown and esteemed as nothing”, and the joy that comes of self-forgetting. I wished that, like the Face of Jesus, mine “should be … hidden and despised, so that no one on earth should esteem me”. I thirsted to suffer and to be forgotten.
