St Mary's & St Michael's
Parish of Shalford & Peasmarsh

Week beginning 19th July
Dear friends,

Hoping this finds you well.  There's various items of new news and opportunities included below within this e-news.  Just briefly a few notes on worship as things continue to evolve. 

This Sunday if you wish to worship at St Mary's live at 9.30am, hopefully you will have 3 choices:  in person in St Mary's Church, via Zoom live with others at home/anywhere (see link below), or via St Mary's youtube channel live (or later recorded) see video link in box below.  Whichever way and wherever you worship, we join together inclusively virtually or in person, and I hope you're able to find fellowship and participation alongside each other via chat functions on zoom or youtube, and beyond all else.... find God. 

To join St Mary's worship at 9.30am Sunday 19th July via ZOOM - just click on this link and hopefully you'll be with all in person and online via zoom.  Please keep your audio on mute throughout, and please use the written chat opportunity to greet each other, share peace, chat, end with blessings in farewell.

Thanks to Katrina (ordinand at St Mary's) for preaching for us; thanks to Dave and Sally for enabling St Mary's bells to be rung, safely, again; thanks to Ann, Sally, Naomi, Nigel and all the team of volunteers for cleaning, stewarding and supporting to enable St Mary's to open for worship again in person now as well as online.  It's so good to come together wherever we are alongside each other, as we lament and pray, and give thanks and praise, to God.

As the fields around us here in Shalford see the combine harvesters rumble, and the golden grains gathered in, our gospel reading leads us to ponder on the wheat and the tares, indistinguishable as they grow together, and to give thanks for the grace of God by which we live, and the beauty of creation in our lives. And so this blessing offered for your week:

Go gently, my friend:
feel the good earth
beneath your feet,
celebrate the rising of the sun,
listen to the birds at dawn,
walk gently under the silent stars,
knowing you are on holy ground
held in love.

with love and prayers,
Rev'd Sarah
