Dear Friends,

I wonder how you spend your weekends. For some people it can be just as busy as the weekdays. Rushing around doing the things that you didn’t get time to do.

Right at the beginning of time, God was busy, he created the world. We read in the first book of the bible that God created the world in 6 days. What did he do on the 7th day? He rested. Why did he do that? Well I believe he did that to set us a pattern to follow. Work and rest. Just today on the radio there was a report about sleep and how we all need to have enough. We can’t do without rest.

Many Christians endeavour to rest on a Sunday. They pull away from the everyday demands of life and rest as they worship, pray and enjoy time with other Christians. At times this is not easy for the tasks and challenges don’t disappear, but somehow strength and new energy is gained, in preparation for the new week head. The freedom to gather together, to bring our joys and concerns to the God who loves us, is a true privilege and we acknowledge that in various countries this is denied. We are thankful for the privilege that is ours.

So I return where I began, I wonder how you spend your weekend. If you do attend worship, then is there somebody you know who you could bring along? And if you don’t go to church, how about giving it a go…. I am sure that you will find much more than you imagined.

As God says “Come to me, all you who are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest.”

See you very soon


Rev Michelle Ireland
