Church Bible Text 2017:

A word from the Rev
The theme of yesterdays service was travelling, after all we are all travellers whether it be to work, or school, on holiday, or church each week, and we are all on a daily journey with God. With this in mind, I would like to share a short reflection with you, about travelling by Walt Whitman.
Take ship my soul, joyous launch out on to trackless saes. Fearless for unknown shores to sail, chanting a song of pleasant exploration. Away, brave souls! Farther and farther sail, o daring joy but safe. Are they not the seas of God? O farther, farther, farther sail!
Wherever your journeys take you this week, may you know the presence and protection of the Lord as he journeys with you.
Have a good week; Arthur.
