Today begins my six week Sabbatical – a gift of time I am truly grateful for. A time to rest, refresh and refocus. A time to clear and declutter practically, spiritually and emotionally. A time to have space with God, allowing his agenda for this time, not mine. I have no doubt this will be a ‘good’ time and a valuable time. I have no doubt this will be a challenging and a pruning time.
During this time all our children’s and families groups will be running as normal thanks to the fantastic team of people who volunteer alongside me faithfully week by week, month by month, year by year. Thank you all.
Any queries or needs, please do contact the church office or chat with Esther (Chair of the Children’s, Youth and Families Action Group) or Rebecca.
I will be back at my desk and contactable from Monday 17th February and my first Sunday back in church will be Sunday 23rd February. I look forward to being with you all again then and to hearing how God has been at work in your lives too throughout these coming weeks.
For now, may God bless you all richly and hold you in his loving arms.
Sharon Fowler (Children’s and Families Team Leader)
