THOUGHTS & SMILES:

I dreamt a world without sorrow
I dreamt a world without hate,
I dreamt a world of rejoicing,
And I woke to find Christ at my gate.

I dreamt a world without hunger,
I dreamt a world without war,
I dreamt a world full of loving,
And I woke to find Christ at my door.

I dreamt a world without anger
I dreamt a world without pride,
I dreamt of a world of compassion,
And I woke to find Christ at my side.

I dreamt of this world of tomorrow,
I dreamt of this world set apart,
I dreamt of this world full of glory,
And I woke to find Christ in my heart.”   Marion Elliot

Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen

THOUGHTS & SMILES
We can’t underestimate the power of prayer, or the comfort it can bring.
This anonymous poem says it all:

            Just close your eyes
And open your heart
And feel your worries
And cares depart,
Just yield yourself
To the Father above
And let Him hold you
Secure in His love.
For life on earth
Grows more involved
With endless problems
That can’t be solved.

So when you are tired
Discouraged and blue.
There’s only one door
That is open to you,
And that’s the door to
The House of Prayer,
You’ll find God waiting
To meet you there.”

Note from Tony & Shirley:
Shirley & I have looked after the church coffee hour for many years and continue to enjoy doing so. We would like to continue doing this service to all but with some help-such as with the purchasing of the coffee hour supplies, setting up, etc. -this would also be a help to know someone is looking after things when we are unable to be in church
Please talk to Tony & Shirley and ask how you can help them.
