SCHOOL GOVERNORS – NOW ONE VACANCY – do mention it if you are interested. It isn’t all that time consuming and is a wonderful service to the school and the community.
FOOD BANK – many thanks for the food and baby items left in the porch – taken to the Food Band on Thursday and ever so gratefully received.
AND INTO JULY – seen as nature’s breathing space, the pause between flower-time and fruit-time. Bird song is hushed and blackbirds will not sing again until February. And this week besides the football we have Wimbledom and the Tour de France. One parishioner refuses to answer the door and telephone during Wimbledom. If we don’t enthuse about sport, we can enjoy the strawberries.
YOU – may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.

RICHARD NIXON – Life is one crisis after another.
JOHN LENNON –Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans
ALBERT EINSTEIN – The man who regards his life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not mererly unhappy but hardly fit for life.
JOHN O’DONOHUE – ‘There is great beauty in dignity; it is a special quality of presence. It is wonderful to behold a person who inhabits their own dignity. The human body is its own language. Every gesture you make speaks about who you are. The way you hold yourself, how you walk, sit, speak and touch things tells of your quality of soul. Some people have a clear dignity of carriage and composure. You sense their self-respect and the ease with which they are at home in their own presence. Other people squander their presence completely. They live a half-mile outside themselves, their personalities sprung in search of notice and affirmation.
Your presence inevitably reveals what you think of yourself…….’
PRAYER – Let the pure fire of your love burn up in me all that is foreign to your love and holiness, so that I may begin to love as you have taught us to love, dear and
MATRIMONIAL BLISS – Samuel T Coleridge -‘The best marriages are between deaf men and blind women.’
KEEP WELL AND KEEP ON KEEPING ON.
