Monthly letter from Carol Cotton (Church and Community Pastoral Worker)

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year to you all. As we stand at the door of a New Year, I wonder what 2018 will bring for each of us. Some things we already know will be happening in our lives and some things will happen that we yet do not know.

One thing we can be sure of is that God will be walking with us through it all and giving us the strength to face whatever comes our way.

One thing we do know that will be happening in our family this year is a new baby girl due to be born in May to our son, Steven and his wife Jenny. All very exciting, they are busy decorating and I am busy knitting!!

 

A little quote for you to take into the New Year:

‘If this is to be a Happy New Year, a year of usefulness, a year in which we shall live to make this earth better,

it is because God will direct our pathway. How important then, to feel our dependence upon Him!’ Matthew Simpson.

You will notice later in the magazine about the Quiet Day at Foxhill on Saturday 14th April. Following on from Rob talking about resting by quiet, still waters this could be one really helpful thing for people to come along to. I am now taking names so please speak to me to get your name down. More information later in the magazine.

I want to pay tribute to the members of KMC for their love both practically, financially and emotionally after Jo Brown’s death. During one of the saddest times the Church has had to endure, the support people are giving to each other is good. Rob has said more than once if anyone feels the need to talk, in confidence, about anything please contact us, we are available.

Carol
