Revd Sharon Lord writes………..

Let me wish you a peaceful and blessed New Year.

Little did I know when I wrote ‘Happy New Year’ for the Digest at the beginning of 2020 what sort of year we were going to be faced with.

As I write this, we are about to go into Tier 4 on Boxing Day and perhaps we don’t feel like celebrating new year.

For many of us we will be glad to see the back of 2020! But perhaps equally worried about what 2021 may bring.

As a church community let us continue to pray for an end to Covid-19, that no more lives will be cut short because it, that no more people will lose their jobs, their homes because of it. That we are able to visit those in care homes and the housebound in our community. That we will be able to see our family and friends. That we are able to socialise together soon. That as a church we are able to pay our bills and be good stewards of all the donations we receive.

As human beings we need community and we are so blessed with our community here in Pakefield, as any of you who have benefited from The Pakefield Community Group can attest to. If you are able to volunteer or if you are in need don’t hesitate to contact either myself or them.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord let his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord uncover his face to you and give you peace.

Blessings         Revd Sharon
