The Readers Write

By the time you read this the Christmas celebrations will have come and gone. You may well be reflecting on the year of 2016 and looking forward to 2017 with renewed resolve and some resolutions, perhaps?
For me, 2016 was a real rollercoaster of a year and I experienced some of the maximum highs and deepest lows of my life. But the highlight was undoubtedly my re-licensing to the Lambfold Benefice back in September. I want to use this opportunity to thank all of you for the warmth of your welcome and the ease with which you have accepted me into your ”fold”. No words can truly express my gratitude and all I hope is that I can repay your generosity in the years to come.
When I look back at my plans and resolutions for 2016 I am reminded of something I am probably over-fond of saying: “What makes God laugh? People making plans”. Life is full of surprises and being Christians does not mean that we will not experience the pleasant and unpleasant surprises that are part and parcel of our time here on earth.
However, by following Christ and placing our faith in Him, we can gain comfort that He is with us to guide us, laugh with us and comfort us in our time of need.
So, I wish you all a Happy New Year and whatever your plans maybe and whatever life may throw at you, I pray that you will know that the Lord is there for you, always.
