SCHOOL GOVERNORS – just recently we acquired two new governors and require one more to complete our membership quota. Being a governor isn’t overly demanding and is a wonderful service to the school and the parish. Do mention it if you are interested – one way of getting to heaven!
QIGONG EVENING – would you be interested in a taster session of Qigong (pronounced Cheegong)? Translated as ‘life energy’. Qigong is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and, meditation; its benefits include stress reduction, decreased joint pain, improved heart health, better physical functioning, improved balance, and protection from falls. You can even do it seated. Come along and share the evening with a brilliant practitioner, Mr David Baily. Please show your interest on the sheet in the porch and we can arrange an evening.
INTERESTING – Mother Teresa (Saint) never tried to convert a Muslim or Hindu to Catholicism. She told her sisters not to talk about Jesus or even to promote Jesus, but TO BE JESUS.
