Back to school! That’s the lesson this week in Scripture and Covid life. Not only children but all Christians need the communal support for learning and wellbeing, to help us “get it”, sink in, realize.
With faces unmasked on the mountain, their Teacher, Rabbi, unmasks his deepest identity, face to face learning who he really is under the appearances. Delighted they are in the discovery –
though dread and awesome overwhelmed as well – for they had to cope with cloud and voice as well as the radiant beauty: This isn’t just glory – this is Divine Glory!
OUR PARISH STILL SERVES IN FAITH AS WE ALL STILL STAY AT HOME
- Gratitude isn’t cancelled. Generosity isn’t cancelled. Hope isn’t cancelled. Joy isn’t cancelled.
Family isn’t cancelled. Love isn’t cancelled. And FAITH cannot be cancelled.
There are NO public Masses, nor communion outside church until further notice

Magnificat Prayer: Magnificat for 2021
We ask you to participate in the HeartStone Census 2020:
As well as personal contact details, our census form asks you to give offers of Ministry. Please complete it and return it to the Parish Office.
The summary proposals on our four Synod Themes have been published: find them on the Synod website www.synod2020.co.uk. Over the coming weeks our local Synod Members will be inviting your responses to the proposals as we continue to discern the Church God is calling us to be. Please visit the website, read the summary proposals, and prayerfully reflect on them.
Mary’s Magnificat Prayer of Praise
My soul glorifies the Lord.
My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.
He looks on his servant in my lowliness;
Henceforth all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me, Holy his name!
His mercy is from age to age, on those who revere him.
God puts forth his arm in strength and scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.
God fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel his servant, remembering his mercy,
the mercy promised to our ancestors, to Abraham and his offspring for ever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Sharing the Mission of Jesus:
Lord, I thank you for the wonder of my being, and for all the goodness in my life.
I thank you that you have called me that I might make a difference in the world in which you have placed me.
Open my heart more fully to your Spirit, that I may rejoice in all that you have done and will do in me and through me. Amen
