Message from the Rector
Whilst trying to access help from our insurance company for a damaged window at Hickling Church as a result of storm damage, I learned a new phrase. We learned that it was not a storm and therefore we could not claim, we were informed that it was a "protracted wind event!" A new and interesting phrase, and so I urge you to be careful of protracted wind events particularly as we move into the season of potentially lots of protracted wind events!
On a more serious note, there is much in our world that is difficult, injustice, famine, flood, homelessness and conflict. And we continue to pray and support those around the world as we are able. The British people are incredibly generous and so are the people in our villages. I especially want to thank you for your kindness in donating toiletries to Aspire Young peoples homeless project in Great Yarmouth, the project were overwhelmed by your generosity.
There are many acts of generosity around our four villages that are often not seen, the giving of time and resources as well as the giving of money and food. This is what creates community, coming together to focus on a project. As we approach the Centenary of the Armistice which ended the hostilities of the first World War, there will be Remembrance services throughout the four villages, this is an opportunity to take a moment to remember and give thanks for those lives lost, and to reflect on our responses to conflict and disunity, and the impact of this on the world around us.
In this coming reflective season, I pray that you and all those that you love and pray for, may be strengthened in your inner being with power through His Spirit, that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith, and that you will know how high and wide and deep is the love of Christ for you – the one Messiah who gave his life for us that we might be reconciled to one another and to God through the saving Act of Christ on the cross. Amen
Revd Deborah Hamilton-Grey
