A word from the Rev
Back in my schooldays this time of year was known as the ‘conker season’ that time of year when conker competition was at a frenzy. I have been told that such sport is banned in schools now for health and safety reasons?? Give a horse chestnut a close examination and we will find a hard shell and a soft inner. I think it is fair to say that there are many people, Christians included who could be described in the same way. On the outside they appear hard and knurled thanks mainly to the pressures of life, but on the inside, there is something soft just trying to break out. You may know of such people, so, in the coming week take time to pray for those who may on the outside appear to be hard, but on the inside, are soft, warm and full of love. Have a blessed week.
