Dear Brothers and Sisters,

St. Frances of Assisi said that each one of us should preach the gospel by all means possible and even if necessary to preach it by the word. I think that St. Frances means that the best way of preaching the gospel, the best way of laying the foundation of that preaching, is to live the gospel that we preach. Then our word has at least some credibility. It is the same for us; before all else we must try to live the gospel; to see things with the eyes of faith, and believe that in the end “all will be well, and all will be well, and all manner of things will be well” (Julian of Norwich).


Have a good week.

Fr. Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Corpus Christi, the Latin for The Body of Christ, sounds more exotic than the English. Being ‘spiritual’ sounds better than being human. However, the fact that God became man in Jesus Christ is reason enough for us to celebrate our humanity. The gift of Jesus in Holy Communion reinforces and grounds us in our humanity. We are becoming in Jesus what we are meant to be – fully human – feeling, loving, vulnerable human beings who need one another for life itself – for affirmation, for growth and for wellbeing. We must all learn that what God wants of us is to act justly, to love tenderly and walk humbly with our God.

Have a good week.
Fr. Richard

Churches Together in Biggleswade Carnival Float

Permalink
Churches Together in Biggleswade are entering a float into this year's Biggleswade Carnival and are looking for volunteers from the various churches to help put it together.

Unfortunately the date of the carnival itself clashes with that of John Lang's ordination (Sat 20th June) but the float organisers would still be keen to have people help with preparations.

There is a meeting for those interested this coming Friday, 5th June at 7pm at Biggleswade Baptist Church (London Road). Apologies for the late notice but the date has only been set this morning (Tuesday). Just turn up there and you will be made very welcome, I am sure.

The theme of the float is going to be "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" (including a pyramid!).
