Sunday 6 December Virtual Service Good morning
I am delighted to say that we have a guest preacher at our virtual service this morning, the Reverend Dr Ian White. Ian reminds us that each time you think you have got to the end in Mark’s Gospel you have in fact reached a new beginning. Ian gives us valuable insights into how to read a Gospel which begins and ends unexpectedly.

A quick reminder that the last date for dropping off toys is next Sunday, 13 December. We have until next Thursday 10 December to drop off items for St George’s Crypt. The list of things they are particularly wanting is in a link in this mailing.

An Advent blessing from the Northumbria Community:

God of the watching ones,
give us Your benediction.
God of the waiting ones,
give us Your good word for our souls.
God of the watching ones,
the waiting ones,
the slow and suffering ones,                                                              
and of the angels in heaven,                                                            
 and of the child in the womb,                                                          
give us Your benediction,
Your good word for our souls,
that we might rest and rise
in the kindness of Your company.
