Sunday 16th August - Icon of the Day
‘God appears to be resurrecting everything all the time and everywhere. It is not something ‘to believe in’ as much as it is something to observe and be taught by… Love, not death, is the eternal thing. Love, which is nothing more than endless life, is luring us forward because love is what we also and already are.’

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we pray for the Uigar people suffering in China.
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
To keep up to date with how we continue the life of St Mary’s in these difficult times – including our ‘Icons of the Day’, Fr Jeff’s and Fr Piotr’s pastoral letters and reflections, weekly Zoom services and more – do please ‘like’ our Facebook page @StMarysTwickenham and bookmark our website www.stmarytwick.org.uk
