Thursday 6th August – Icon of the Day
‘And that’s what our religion says to us—that Good Friday may occupy the throne for a day, but ultimately it must give way to the triumphant beat of the drums of Easter.’
Martin Luther King

In St Mary’s prayer cycle for this month, today we recall the Transfiguration and pray that our lives may be illuminated by the Holy Spirit within us.
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
