Friday 18th September – Icon of the Day
‘As the rain hides the stars
As the Autumn mist hides the hills,
The happenings of my lot
Hide the shining of Thy face from me.
Yet, if I may hold Thy hand
In the darkness,
It is enough; since I know that,
Though I may stumble in my going,
Thou dost not fall’

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for the rule of law to operate around the world and an end to corruption.
Please donate if you can!
In these unprecedented times, St Mary’s is reaching out and supporting our community in many ways, especially online. But with Services in church cancelled, we no longer receive income from collections, nor from hiring out the church and hall buildings.
If you can help us financially to continue to offer Christ's love to our community in these difficult times, as those before us have done down the centuries, please consider making a donation by debit/credit card and to Gift Aid it if possible, by clicking this link to 'givealittle':
If you would like to contribute to these reflections, please do email Katherine Cox at email@example.com
