Reverend Carolyn writes...

The Referendum on Europe seems to be the only news these days. History suggests that our relations with the countries of Europe has never been an easy one. Our experience of world wars might also have led us to believe that we manage rather well on our own...but we also remember the debt we owe to our allies who in one way or another have played their part in our defence.

Wanting to leave, desiring our independence has been a factor in our ties with the Church. So many of us in the U.K. believe that our lives go on as normal without God's care and inspiration. The towers of our churches hover over us, each building a testament to the faith of previous generations who at great expense, chose to provide us with a sacred house of prayer and worship. We get used to the presence of these places and choose perhaps to overlook their meaning.

Bonds of peace and goodwill in whatever form do not flourish without efforts to keep them in good repair. However unlike our ties one with another, with country and continent, the bonds of peace and love with God can never be broken. We have His promise. These bonds stand as a living, spiritual presence for us and for ever, a sign of His faithfulness. Young and old we all know the prayer, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done. These words, I believe deserve our attention.

With love and prayers
