THE IMPORTANCE OF REST


 'In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and trust shall be your strength. (Jeremiah 30:15)


I was given this verse at a Christian conference some years ago and found it helpful... but when I looked it up in the Bible I found that it goes on 'But you refused ...'


As we approach the holiday season, for many of us I am reminded just how important rest and recuperation are. Rest is inherent in the creativepurposes of God - 'And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested ...' Genesis 2:2 If God himself needs rest we can be sure that we do too.


During August some of our regular services and groups take a break - please do keep your eye on our website, Notice Sheets,and the details in this magazine.


As we approach the holiday season it seems a good time to thank all who do so much to provide the variety of services, clubs and events that we enjoy so much. Thank you too to all who work hard behind the scenes. May I wish you all the very best this summertime.
