WHOLE DAY OFF THE TREADMILL – hope that all can chill out this weekend and enjoy a stress-free Monday!

Expect that this weekend parishioners will be decanting to their country estates, yachts, chateaux and house-boats, tents and wig-wams!

A LANCASTER GRACE – Give us, Lord, a bit o’sun, a bit o’work and a bit o’ fun, Give us all in the struggle and splutter our daily bread and a bit o’ butter.
A GENEROUS HEART – Dear Lord,
We thank you for the bounty of this table.
As we accept this food with humility and love,
Help us to be accepting of others. Amen.
ROOM AT THE INN – there are over 100 billion galaxies, each comprising of billions of stars, and know one knows how many moons and planets.
