From the Vicar

There is something rather relentless about Jesus’s focus on relationships, and especially on hidden hatreds or grudges. These, he says, need to be faced, need to be tackled. He rather thinks they matter…

It is desperately sad when relationships go wrong, and stay wrong. Perhaps in our thoughts and prayers this week we can especially pray for those families and friends we know (perhaps ourselves) where forgiveness and reconciliation are deeply needed.
