Friday 25th September - Icon of the Day
‘[God] claims all because He is love and must bless. He cannot bless us unless He has us. When we try to keep within us an area which is our own, we try to keep an area of death. Therefore, in love, He claims all. There is no bargaining with Him’

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for all victims of abuse, especially children and the elderly.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
