Prayers and Reflections for use at home


All holy Scriptures are written for our learning:
help us to hear them,
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them.

from the Collect for Bible Sunday

On Sunday we are celebrating God's gift to us of his holy Scriptures.  Reading our bibles on a daily basis, with or without the help of bible notes and commentaries, is one of the key ways that we keep on growing as Christians.  It is also one of the key ways that God speaks to us and speaks into our situations.  And, it is how we fall deeper in love with God and seek to live as Jesus would do.  Without our bibles, we would be like a yachtsperson who sets out to cross the Atlantic Ocean without taking any navigation aids!  Through our bibles, we learn to read the times and seasons of God's creation and to sense where God is at work in the world.  When we see an apple or a fig tree starting to bud, we know that new life and fruitfulness is on its way, and through reading God's word we can find hope even in the darkest and most challenging of times.  

May God's word to us this week inspire your daily living and bring fresh hope.

If you are struggling with these uncertain times, do call or email me.  I am here for you.

Every blessing,

Revd Katrina (Vicar)
