Something On Sunday

No SOS this month of course. But please continue to pray for the younger ones and for our planning for the new term. August will soon pass and we'll back to our usual routine.

Saturday Club

In last month's club, we had another go at making marbled papers, with some beautiful and exciting results. Once the first efforts had dried, they were used in the making of greetings cards.

This month's club - on Saturday 3 August - will be a games session again. Come and have fun from 10:00am till 11:00am. There will another games club on Saturday 31 August.

Bible Study

Don't forget Bible study, now on Wednesday evenings. We're beginning Ephesians, chapter 2, a great passage focusing on God's love and grace.

Summer Barbecue

A barbecue is being organised for Saturday 10 August, to be held - weather permitting - in Brian and Christine's garden at 1 White's Mead. Come along and join us for food and fellowship - 4:30pm for 5:00pm.

Breaking of Bread

Breaking of bread will be at 10:30am on Sunday mornings, until SOS resumes on 8 September, when it will return to the usual time of 11:30am.

Thought for the Month

I remember someone once telling me that she wasn't so keen on growing flowers that faced one way when they opened - I suppose she was thinking of daffodils and gladioli. I know gladioli can be frustrating for an amateur to arrange when they persist in turning their backs on you. I don't know about gladioli, but most plants seem to grow to face the light. Sun-loving flowers turn their faces towards the sun. My shrubs lean out from the shade of the trees next to them to catch more light. I've noticed that my morning glory, which was supposed to be growing round an arch, has chosen instead to climb high in a nearby apple tree.

Definitely an example to us. Paul wrote to the Christians in Ephesus (we shall be getting to this in our Bible study): 'you were once in darkness but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light' (Eph 5:8). Jesus is 'the Light of the world' (John 8:12) and we should be fixing our eyes on Jesus (Heb 12:2), just as flowers turn their faces to the sun.

Prayer points - Summer Outreach

Remember to pray for the events taking place this school summer holiday with the aim of spreading the Christian Gospel, especially:

  • Transformers, the Scripture Union holiday for teenagers, with a technology focus - pray for Brain and Christine, Tom and Rachel, Sarah and Will and the rest of the team, as well the young people who will be attending (and of course Aimee and Ben)
  • Beach missions, including the mission at Lyme Regis - pray for Lydia who will be joining the team there
  • Other Christian camps, holidays and holiday clubs
