THE photographs (taken after the church service) are of James Scott, the adorable son of Claire and Shaun who was baptised this past Sunday. What a joy he is! It was a pleasure to have him and his family in church. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me for to such as these belongs the Kingdom of God.”
NEW RULES from the 30th of January: there will be no need to keep a one metre distance from others in church (unless you wish so to do); the rule of three households at a table goes. However, if you can, please take a lateral flow test which should be negative before you come to church. Thank you for your understanding.
God of Creation and of Creativity, we praise You for musicians and singers, artists and sculptors, writers and poets, dancers and gymnasts, and all who, through their creativity, express the depth of feeling of the human spirit, its weaknesses and strengths; its ugliness and its beauty, remembering the achievements of our National Bard, Robert Burns.
Gracious God, We praise You for those who raise their voices through word and song, and pour out their souls into music loud and soft. We praise You for those who put pen to paper - the poets, story tellers, and playwrights who dig deep into the human heart, analyse relationships and act to transform the lives of the poor, the oppressed and the voiceless.
Gracious God, we praise You that You are the God who gives each and every artist and performer their inspiration to fight for justice and peace, for their works witness to You and to Your part in their creativity and in their announcements of Good News to the world.
Lord Jesus Christ, forgive us when we refuse to use our gifts of words and worship to witness to You; when we hide our talents because we do not wish to sacrifice time to You; when we portray the story of our lives with vibrant colours while our spirits remain dull and grey. Lord, forgive us, and inspire us to use our talents to paint Your Kingdom in beautiful word pictures and in loving acts of kindness and care so that we may uplift all whose spirits are downcast.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to believe in our own worth as story tellers, poets, singers, musicians, artists and dancers that we may create in Your image, the God of this wonderful Creation who daily recreates our world for us and recreates us into the joyful people we should be. Amen. (KFG)
A WARM WELCOME awaits you at INSCH-LESLIE-PREMNAY-OYNE PARISH CHURCH on Sunday 23rd January when we celebrate the life of our National Bard, Robert Burns. This is an informative and fun service for ALL AGES. We are delighted that Helen Wood will be singing and young folk will be participating.
Please stay for refreshments across in the church hall.
CALLING ALL KNITTERS: You will remember that we were loaned a net covered in knitted poppies by Mrs Linda Durward of Strathbogie Church for our Remembrance Day Service. It was so dramatic and effective in our church that we would like to make one of our own. Now is the time to start while folk have time on their hands! Mrs Mary Smart and Mrs Beryl Bell have tried out the BBC knitting patterns which are available today and are willing to give help and advice.
Thank you very much to Mrs Moira Thom and Mrs Jane Reid for donating red and black wool. Please help yourselves to a ball of each. OR, please knit purple poppies in memory of all the animals which were killed in the World Wars. This project is open to ALL who would like to contribute poppies. Knitting patterns can also be picked up from Pamela at the D.I.Y. shop. THANK YOU very much in anticipation of your help.
