May Reflection At this glorious time of year, when the sleeping earth is waking up, our mood is one of joy as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. At the end of this month, on May 26th, we celebrate his ascension and it is good to reflect on the gifts he gave to sustain us in our walk with him. Those gifts are: the Holy Spirit, his Word and each other. Each one is dependent on, and as important as, the other, although we don’t always acknowledge the importance of the third one. The truth in his Word is revealed to us by the Holy Spirit and so often in Scripture we are urged by Jesus to love one another. I thank God for the love of fellow Christians and we are truly blessed by this in our Parish. However there are times when someone upsets us or when the challenge to love one another overwhelms us and we seek a sympathetic ear to unload our grievances and speak ill of our perceived adversary. Wise counsellors are what we need at such times otherwise what may be a conflict that is easily resolved can grow into a forest fire. A caustic tongue has a great propensity for gossip. God detests gossip. Psalm 101 verse 5 says “ I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbours. I will not endure conceit and pride.” How easy it is to judge others. Judgement is the primary criticism Jesus had of the Pharisees. Today it remains the least attractive characteristic of Christian and Church practice. As we approach the celebration of the ascension on 26th May, let us fully embrace all the gifts Jesus left for us, including “EACH OTHER”. Learn to love and support one another in good times and bad and leave the judgement to God. Norma Felstead

Morning prayer in Yate Parish


Do you find prayer a little difficult? Would you like some inspiration? Go to the Yate Parish Facebook page to join in Morning Prayer led by our ministry team. You can watch live at 7.30am Monday to Saturday, or watch at any time later in the day. Many people have found it a great start to their day.

 

Weekly at St Mary’s

Thursday Communion at 10.00am

 

Compline @8pm


Before the lockdown happened, we had recorded the saying of Compline. We ask that each evening at 8pm we light a candle in our window and pray together for our nation using the words of the Compline service - it takes just over 5 minutes.


Visit the parish website and click on the recordings to listen; you will find the words of the service there too.

 

DailyHope phone line


DailyHope, a free national telephone line, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of the phone. A Church of England initiative in partnership with CONNECTIONS at Holy Trinity Claygate, and Faith in Later Life. The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind; to provide comfort and spiritual nourishment to the most isolated in our society.
