Each month a different member of the Trinity congregation prepares a few words which we hope that you will find interesting and thought-provoking.
I hope you have managed to stay well and cope with life in very strange times.
I thought I would try and inject some humour, rather than reflect on the kindness people have shown and the amazing key workers, not that they are not worthy of a mention.
We have two sons, the younger was a bit of a pickle at times. During lock-down we had a family session to remember as many of his “funny “ phrases as possible.
Apart from “I hate everyone in this house”, “but why can’t I have a pudding?" (when the main course had been rejected) and “go for a walk, see a fly and come home again.”
The one that sticks with me is “I haven’t lost....... it; I just haven’t started looking for it yet.”
During lock-down more people have been watching or listening to services streamed on the internet. They may have lost their faith, but found it anew with church broadcasts that can be watched at any time, singly or with others. Perhaps they had lost their faith, but lock-down helped them to find it again. Let’s keep streaming services and other spiritual broadcasts; this could become the new normal.
